King Felipe VI of Spain spoke at the Palau de la Musica Catalana during a visit to Barcelona on Sunday, as the city hosts the Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC). During his speech, the King spoke about 'institutional cooperation' and its importance in attracting and building on the opportunities provided by the likes of the MWC. «There is no doubt that the story of this (Mobile World) Congress... Еще in Barcelona, is the story of a success reached through years of work. A success that we owe in the first place to the people of Barcelona, to their dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit,» the King said. Felipe VI was met by protests both in favour and against his visit to the Catalan capital.
