Hello good day!
On his first visit to Spain, the King Emeritus meets his son and current monarch for the first time in two years. In private, although his trip has been little. Meanwhile, ordinary Spain fears an economic crisis that it faces without agreements between the Government and unions and 4 out of 10 self-employed fear for their business. A country with disparate debates and priorities.
Theme of the day
Zarzuela and Government They were looking for a more private trip, but the King Emeritus has been surrounded by cameras and followers. Juan Carlos meets today with his son, King Felipe VI, and his entire family. Reunions of normality in an unusual environment.
And while the eyes are on the Zarzuela, the rent pact is headed for failure. The Spanish economy faces the crisis without agreements between the social agents and the Government. The ‘every man for himself’ arrives. And, in the center, the citizens.
Stability is more fragile than it seems. 38% of the self-employed and 20% of SMEs doubt its continuity. The great fears are old acquaintances that are getting bigger: economic uncertainty, falling sales and fiscal pressure.
