During her visit, the mayor of Canillas de Albaida, Encarnación Pareja, and Cómpeta’s mayor, Rosa Luz Fernández, met with Frederiksen. Frederiksen even suggested reciprocal visits, inviting the mayors to Denmark during the upcoming elections. They discussed Frederiksen’s choice of the Malaga Hills hotel and highlighted their eco-friendly and sustainable practices. Run by a Dutch family that recently settled in the area, the hotel collects rainwater to address local water scarcity issues. Mayor Pareja highlighted the influx of Dutch entrepreneurs to the region, contributing to the economic vibrancy of Canillas de Albaida.
