Finally, at the meeting, which has served to strengthen and strengthen relations between the two governments, it has also been about responsible tourism following the agreement signed with the Secretary of State for Social Services for the promotion of safe, sustainable, healthy and healthy leisure Quality in the tourism sector. The objective of this agreement is to promote a nightlife without alcohol or psychoactive substances to avoid violent behavior.
