FELIPE: On stage at the World Economic Forum in Davos

KING Felipe VI has taken to the stage in Switzerland to boost Spain’s image.

Speaking to leaders at the World Economic Forum, Felipe encouraged business leaders to keep investing in Spain because it is a ‘great country’, despite the ongoing Catalan saga.

“My intention is to reinforce this idea that we are a great country, and help brush away the remaining doubts you may still have,” he told a packed crowd at the Davos summit.

The King also drew on Spain’s tourism trade – which is set to overtake the US as the world’s second most visited country – and its financial recovery after the 2007 crash.

Addressing the Catalan crisis he said the debacle was an ‘attempt to undermine basic rules of our democratic system’.

“(Spain’s constitution) It is the very expression of the will of our citizens and the key pillar of our democratic co-existence,” he said.

“As such, it deserves the utmost respect from each and every one.”
