CISAC Director General visits SGAE headquarters

Gadi Oron, general director of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), has visited the headquarters of the SGAE in Madrid. Oron has met with SGAE’s CEO, Adrián Restrepo, and SGAE’s president, Antonio Onetti. The visit highlights the normalization of relations between the two organizations. COVID’s effects in the cultural sector or Ukraine’s war have been some of the issues at the meeting.
