City of Madrid Profits Over $200 Million from WYD

The Spanish capital city of Madrid came away with over $200 million in profits after World Youth Day 2011 held this past August, officials said. The Community of Madrid estimated that WYD produced an increase of $199 million in the region’s Gross Interior Product. The contribution made by WYD was also recognized by the Madrid Consistory, which awarded the event with the Tourism Prize of the City of Madrid for promoting the city internationally. It also classified WYD as a National Patrimony.
