Calviño attacks the strike of carriers: “They have received support”


Nadia Calviño, First Vice President and Minister of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, has declared that the next indefinite unemployment summoned by the Platform for the Defense of the Transport Sector “is not understood” and has called for “responsibility”. The lockdown is planned from the midnight next sunday.

“The truth is that it is not understood that these types of appeals can be given in a sector that has received a financial support of the whole of Spanish society”, urged the first vice-president in her statements to the media after the meeting with the executive president of the development bank of Latin America – CAF, Sergio Díaz-Granados.

Calviño has pointed out that, in total, the financial aid that has been granted to the sector has been €1.4 billion and recalled the legislative changes agreed a few months ago to make against price escalation. “The government has complied with the road transport sector,” she defended.

Although he stressed that the “overwhelmingly” carriers are aware of the support that Spanish society has given them to face a difficult situation such as that generated by the rise in energy costs, the first vice president has reiterated her call for responsibility. “This is the time to shoulder all and to show responsibility supporting the whole of Spanish society”, reiterated the Government’s financial officer.

“Breakthrough” in European fiscal policy governance

In relation to the reform of the european tax rulesCalviño pointed out that what has become known about the proposals of the European Commission and the communication that is expected to be published tomorrow is a “good base of worked“.

In the opinion of the First Vice President, although the proposal maintains the public debt and deficit targetsrepresents an advance in terms of governance in fiscal policy that allows countries to have a path of fiscal responsibility that is compatible with economic growth and the employment creation.

The head of Economy recalled that the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has submitted to the Council of Ministers the second report on the degree of compliance with budget stability objectives, in which it follows that in 2021 the Spanish public deficit registered the biggest discount in history.

Specifically, the public deficit closed 2021 at 6.77% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), not including financial aid, which is 3.2 points less than in the previous year. “We are committed with a fiscal responsibility but in a way that is compatible with maintaining a economic growth and good job creation”, Calviño affirmed.
