On Sunday night, Karamanlis will take part in a working meeting on the theme "Alliance of Civilizations" that will take place at the CCIB Conference Centre and afterwards attend a cultural event at the National Art Museum of Catalonia and a dinner given by King Juan Carlos of Spain in honor of the visiting heads of state and government.
