He confirmed the decision will be approved in the next Extraordinary Governing Board plenary session, so that the suspension will be ‘backdated’ January 1 to the end of June.

The reason, he said, was because of the “economic damages caused as a result of the State of Alarm during COVID-19 .

Almagro also ensured: “we show all our support for the [hospitality] sector, as it has been seriously affected during this pandemic since March 2020”.
