Spain’s Queen Sofia Honored for Her Humanitarian Work

MADRID – Spain’s Queen Sofia was granted on Monday the Excellent Award of Spain at the closing ceremony of the 8th International Congress of Business Excellence which took place in Madrid.

President of Madrid Community Cristina Cifuentes gave the recognition to Queen Sofia for her humanitarian work.

Queen Sofia thanked the award and claimed she did not deserve it because “it is too much.”

At the congress closure, Cifuentes said the mother of King Felipe personifies “the spirit of solidarity of the Spanish society,” by helping those in need.

Cifuentes praised Queen Sofia’s humanitarian work in multiple social, educational and health causes, showing “the highest sensitivity and professionalism.”

The rest of the winners at the 8th International Congress of Business Excellence were Joseph Manuel Barroso, Rafael Matesanz, Luis Maroto and Rapelang Rabana.

The aim of this conference is to help companies in the digital transformation to become more competitive nationally and internationally according to the head of the regional government,

Cifuentes has stated that “the biggest challenge” that lies ahead is that “SMEs join the train of technological transformation.”

In this regard, the Madrid Community President stressed that companies with ten or more employees, whose head offices are located in the Community of Madrid, are “leading the use of new technologies in Spain.”

The president of the Community said that the Madrid region has pioneered the introduction of a new subject, Technology, Programming and Robotics, throughout the stage of compulsory secondary education, which is taught only in the United Kingdom and Estonia.
