As announced on the official Twitter account of Malaga City Council on Wednesday, August 31, the city’s mayor, Francisco de la Torre, has been awarded an Honorary OBE (Honorary Officer of the Order of the British Empire) for his services to bilateral relations.

The mayor has received this distinction for his services in promoting relations between the United Kingdom and the city of Malaga. It was also emphasised that, during his time as Mayor, De la Torre has promoted the economic and social development of the city of Malaga, as well as its residents, the business sector, and tourism.

Among the reasons for awarding him the decoration was the fact that he is a great supporter of the British community in the cultural, economic and social spheres.
