The Princess of Asturias Foundation Board of Trustees held its ordinary meeting corresponding to the second half of the year at the Reconquista Hotel in Oviedo today, where it approved the budget and action plan for 2020 and was informed of the activities undertaken this past year and of the Foundation’s financial situation and assets.

The Foundation’s president, Luis Fernández-Vega, and director, Teresa Sanjurjo, reported on the activities undertaken by the Foundation throughout the year, focussing especially on the Princess of Asturias Awards Ceremony and the cultural events leading up to it, the activities related to the institution’s Music Department and the impact all these events have had in the media.

The report includes information on participation at the cultural events organized around the Award Ceremony, attended by more than 27,000 people. This figure is supplemented by the more than 6,900 students from 114 schools who participated in the “Taking the Floor” educational programme.
