Learn about the projects and programs that Fundación MAPFRE has in the United States
With almost 10 million square kilometers and more than 320 million inhabitants, the United States is the fifth largest country in area and the third largest in population. Its gross domestic product, which is a quarter of the world’s GDP, makes it the undisputed economic, military, political and cultural hegemonic power. It is also one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse nations, the result of mass immigration throughout its history. Fundación MAPFRE also has a presence in the United States, helping to carry out projects in different states.
