Michael Douglas yesterday received the gold medal from the Majorcan Tourist Board for his efforts to promote the island across the world and also for his Costa Nord cultural centre in Valldemossa. Douglas arrived at the ceremony in the centre of Palma without Catherine Zeta Jones who is in London for a fashion launch. The U.S. Consular Agent Tumi Bestard kicked off the ceremony with a brief speech about the history of the Tourist Board and its 100 years of existence. Douglas thanked the Tourist Board and said that it was a great honour to receive the award, especially as “most of the recipients had lived on the island most of their lives and I've only been coming to Majorca for 20 years.” Douglas went on to say that it was a great pleasure for him to promote the island, especially, as he loved it so much. “We must also encourage tourists to visit other parts of the island including the mountains and countryside,” he said. The Hollywood star didn't rule out the possibility that one day he might make a film on Majorca. Also attending the presentation yesterday was the President of the Tourist Board, Miguel Vicenc, the city councillor for tourism Joan Bauza and the President of the Hoteliers Federation, Pere Cañellas.
