Royal visit to Ballermann: The Spanish King Felipe VI. and Queen Letizia want to find out more about the location of tourism after the Corona break on Thursday on the holiday island of Mallorca.
Together with Regional President Francina Armengol and Minister of Tourism Reyes Maroto, the monarchs at Playa de Palma will look at the Germans' favorite beach and, among other things, visit the Riu Concordia Hotel, where numerous tourists from Germany are currently vacationing, as the regional government announced. In addition, Felipe (50) and Letizia (47) would meet with entrepreneurs and union representatives, it said.
The visit of Mallorca takes place as part of a tour of the royal couple through all of Spain, where the royals primarily want to promote tourism that has been badly affected by the pandemic. The tour had started in the Canary Islands on Tuesday. In Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Felipe said that the country had to be "rebuilt" together. In Spain, after the end of the lockdown and the opening of the borders to tourists, there was "at least a little cheer again". But one is "facing a very steep rise" to create the economic and social recovery.
Nowhere in Spain are people so dependent on tourism as in the Canaries and the Balearic Islands. The industry contributes around 35 percent of economic output in both regions. With more than 28,000 fatalities and almost 250,000 infections diagnosed, Spain was one of the hardest hit countries by Corona.
