Eduardo Campoy, president of the Spanish Producers' Federation (FAPAE), has been named advisor to Spain's Foreign Commerce Institute (ICEX).

This marks the first time that the ICEX has appointed an advisor from the media sector. Campoy will advise on how Spanish audiovisual product can better sell abroad.

Campoy - a film director and president of the Pantalla Digital and Cartel production houses - was named president of FAPAE in January of 2000, when he replaced outgoing president Gerardo Herrero. Among his priorities at FAPAE are the amplification of theatrical and television distribution for Spanish films.
