SPAIN’S Queen Letizia has thrown her weight behind calls to reverse the de-population of inland Spain.
She met with members of the press to discuss the problem at a seminar in El Burgo de Osma (Castille-Leon).
For two days, several dozen journalists and communicators from all over Spain participated to analyse how the media can help repopulate rural Spain.
The queen, accompanied by the Minister of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, attended the final session and spoke with the organisers of the event including El Hueco (an organisation that seeks to attract investment in the province of Soria) and pressure group Presura.
The queen, who on her arrival was received by the president of the Castilla y Leon parliament, Ángel Ibáñez, the delegate of the Government in the region, Mercedes Martín and town mayor Jesús Alonso, greeted several hundred people who had gathered in the surrounding area.
She went on walkabout, shook hands with children and adults, posed for dozens of selfies and agreed to sign numerous autographs for schoolchildren.
