The King will receive today in Valencia the Coexistence Prize awarded by the Manuel Broseta Professor Foundation, a distinction that in previous editions have also received both his father, Don Juan Carlos, and his mother, Queen Sofia.
Felipe VI will travel to the Valencian Community to receive this award and then move to Alicante in order to preside over the central act commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Business Confederation of the region.
In the Palace of the Generalitat and in an act in which will be present the president of the community, Ximo Puig, and the Minister of Public Works, José Luis Ábalos, the head of the State will receive the Convivencia Prize.
The distinction was granted by the jury in recognition of his "courageous leadership" and in homage to the values that represent the parliamentary monarchy after 40 years of the approval of the Constitution.
The prize recalls the figure of Manuel Broseta, the former Dean of the Faculty of Law of the University of Valencia and exdiputado of UCD that was killed by ETA in the Valencian capital on January 15, 1992.
Last year, this award, which is endowed with 12,000 euros, went to the Catalan Civil Society.
The king will move in the afternoon from Valencia to Alicante to preside in the auditorium of the Provincial Council the central act of the celebrations of the Business Confederation of the Valencian Community on the occasion of its 40th anniversary.
An event in which, in addition to Felipe VI and Puig, the president of the CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, and his vice president and head of Valencian businessmen, Salvador Navarro will speak.
