The opening day allowed them to exchange impressions with the top officials of the Spanish delegation: the Minister of Tourism, Héctor Gómez, and the Secretary of State for Tourism, Rosana Morillo. In addition to this, they were able to talk with the mayor of Malaga, Francisco de lana Torre Prados.

 

The director of the Galician Tourism Agency, Xosé Manuel Merelles, pointed out the importance of this market segment, which this year reached the best data since records have been recorded. English is the fifth most important international market for Galicia, with hotel demand that is growing especially outside of the high season.
