His Majesty the King of Spain, Felipe VI, presides the Committee of Honor of Termatalia 2019 to be held in Ourense between September 18 and 21. This acceptance supports once again the trajectory of the International Fair of Thermal Tourism, Health and Welfare and positions it as a project of general interest for society by promoting the Culture of Water and its sustainable use, while generating new business opportunities for Spanish and Latin American companies since the fair has positioned itself as an example of public-private cooperation in Ibero-America. With his acceptance to be part of this project, the House of the King ratifies his support once again to this appointment, chairing the honor committee year after year since he was Prince of Asturias and has continued to do now in his role as monarch.
