Agencia EFE, S.A. (Spanish: [ˈefe]) is a Spanish international news agency, the major multimedia news agency in the Spanish language and the world's fourth largest wire service after the Associated Press, Reuters, and Agence France-Presse.[1]

EFE was created in 1939 by Ramón Serrano Súñer,[2] then Spain's minister of the Interior and brother-in-law of Francisco Franco.

Employees in Spain are represented by several labor unions. EFE has about 40 employees in the United States who voted on 29 September 2005 to be represented by the News Media Guild. Workers ratified a first labor contract in December 2006, marking the first time the company had ever reached such an agreement outside Spain.

The agency organized the second News Agencies World Congress (NAWC) in 2007.[3]
