The King and Queen of Spain continued video conferences today from their home at the Palace of Zarzuela.
Their Majesties held a video conference with senior officials of El Corte Inglés - the biggest department store group in Europe. The officials explained how better protection measures for customers and employees and the promotion of digital commerce for online sales are key to the future in adapting consumption after the pandemic.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia later held a video conference with representatives from the Taxi Sector which is made of 63,494 taxi license holders, of whom 98.3% are self-employed. During the pandemic there has been a drastic drop in mobility, taxies have largely been providing services to the elderly, doctors, nurses, and patients, often altruistically. FEDETAXI and ANTAXI estimate that it will take a long time for activity to return to relative normality. A decrease in traffic is expected in areas of demand such as airports, hotels, etc due to the collapse of national and international tourism, along with the possible cancellations of public events. In rural areas where taxi revenues are much lower the direct and indirect cost is expected to exceed the income or reduce the net return to insufficient levels.
Queen Letizia gave us a better look at the Hugo Boss 'Fysa' Blue Colorblock V-Neck Sweater of which we only got a glimpse of when she debuted it in April.
The tricolor superfine wool sweater flaunts a colorblock design with a V-neckline, long sleeves, and rib-knit neck, cuffs and hem.
