His Royal Highness Prince Felipe of Asturias Opens the 2012 Asamblea General de Cámaras.

On November 27, 2012, His Royal Highness Prince Felipe of Asturias opened the 2012 Asamblea General de Cámaras held at the Palacio de Congresos de Madrid.

In his opening speech, the future king of Spain spoke about the economic crisis and the rising unemployment in his country:

“Unemployment is a harsh and painful reality in our country that affects millions of people of all ages, but particularly preys on young people… there are thousands of small businesses that have disappeared, causing a significant gap in a business network that is key to economic growth and creating jobs.”

Well, that’s depressing.

Thankfully, he gave words of encouragement to the 1,700 attendees who attended today’s event stating, “… there is no reason to lose confidence in the ability of the Spanish to change things, to recover, to overcome the difficulties.”
