The King supported this Thursday the Aragonese employers in the celebration of the 40 years of life of this business organization. The former CREA, currently called CEOE-Aragón, celebrated its fortieth anniversary on Tuesday with an institutional act that took place at the Aragón Government headquarters.
During his official speech, Felipe VI stressed that, despite the current "complex" international environment, "Spain is determined to respond to the challenges and resume the path of prosperity as soon as possible, which has proven to be a characteristic element of our national foreign sector.
He expressed his confidence that the exports of the Spanish business fabric are, once again, "one of the levers of the reactivation and engine of the recovery and growth of our economy, as it has been on previous occasions".
Thus, in the medium and long term, he is convinced that "we will achieve an economy and a society that are more prepared to be able to face crises such as the one that has hit us recently and any other type of phenomenon that may arise in the future".
During his speech before the Aragonese employers and the institutional representatives of Aragon, Felipe VI appealed on Tuesday to continue working together "for and for Aragon, for and for Spain." In this sense, he highlighted the role historically played by this region: "I know very clearly that Aragon is a true turbo for the character and engine of Spain" and "I encourage you to continue being so, to face the future eagerly, with strength and with that character that has marked you for so many centuries».
The King was accompanied, among others, by the mayor of Zaragoza and regional leader of the PP, Jorge Azcón, by the president of the CEOE Aragón, Miguel Marzo, and by the president of the Government of Aragón, the socialist Javier Lambán, who governs in coalition with Podemos, the sovereignists of the Chunta and the PAR.
