The Spanish royals helped celebrate elEconomista decade of journalist innovation, with the king commemorating it as a publication which benefited from global diffusion. During the pre-lunch speech, he said that it "has been able to establish and consolidate as a benchmark of business journalism in Spain and in different countries of Latin America".

The world's third-youngest monarch, 48, also highlighted the vision its founders had, 10 years ago, for a new global economic environment – one "which had not yet peeked the crisis" – as well as the "need for new technology" requiring the press to "rethink its future model."

The king highlighted the internationalisation pursued by elEconomista in Latin America, which has contributed "to the greater connection and closeness between the Americas and Spain and the objective of encouraging the activity and internationalisation of our companies on both sides of the Atlantic."

Publishing company Ecoprensas president Alfonso de Salas recalled its "progress achieved in recent decades." He also noted the importance of monarchy in those years as a guarantee of prosperity and stability and highlighted the efforts made by the entrepreneurs of Spain to overcome the economic crisis.
