After the visit to the Torrelavega National Cattle Market, Their Majesties held a meeting with the representatives of the Cantabria livestock sector groups. Felipe highlighted the relevance of the primary sector during the pandemic where Spanish society, he said, has rediscovered the importance of this sector. An essential sector in the entire food chain that has been fundamental for the Spanish.
