Continuing the tour of Spain to promote tourism and the economy, today King Felipe and Queen Letizia were out and about in Mallorca. The Royal family’s summer residence, the Balearic Islands is a famous tourist spot. Earlier this week on Tuesday, Felipe and Letizia visited the Gran Canaria Islands to promote tourism.
The Royal couple began the day with a visit to the Iberostar Cristina hotel, where the Iberostar Group has launched a pilot plan in which they are offering free accommodation in this establishment to their employees and relatives of the island to test the effectiveness of its health protocols against COVID-19, before its reopening to tourists.
Sitting at the outdoor terrace of the hotel, Felipe and Letizia had a meeting with a representation of the Balearic business association (CAEB), social agents (UGT and CCOO) and the hotel associations and federations of the Balearic Islands (FEHM, ASHOME and FHIF).
These tours are part of the “Spain for Sure” campaign that was launched last week to rescue the Spanish economy. Spain’s socio-economy hugely relies on tourism and the tourism section was hugely affected by the COVID-19.
The Confederation of Business Associations of the Balearic Islands (CAEB) is the most representative organization of the Balearic Islands and defends the general interests of the businessmen of the Balearic Islands before all decision-making and power centres.
Later, King Felipe and Queen Letizia held a meeting with representatives of the Xarxa per a la Inclusió Social – EAPN-Balears (European Anti Poverty Network – EAPN European Network for the Fight against Poverty and Social Exclusion), led by its president, Margarita Jordá.
EAPN Balearic Islands – Network for Social Inclusion is an association made up of thirty entities that work in the community to eradicate poverty and social exclusion. EAPN-IB establishes relationship and coordination mechanisms between the different associated entities that work with people at risk of social exclusion, unifying the representation and dialogue before the different administrations.
