Garamendi demands a tourist PERTE and asks for improvements to infrastructure


The president of the Spanish Confederation of Organizations (CEOE), Antonio Garamendi, has demanded a PERTE tourist “powerful” for the sector and has warned of the need to improve infrastructures airports in Spain such as Barcelona-El Prat.

This was stated at the opening of a conference organized by CEOE and Deloitte to present the report ‘Response plan for the tourism sector’in which he referred to the expansion of El Prat, denouncing that “Spain cannot renounce” this operation, since “It is not only an investment for Barcelona or Catalonia, but also for Spain”has added.

By 2030, Garamendi has pointed out that there will be “more than 2,400 million potential tourists from Asia or Southeast Asia”, which represents an opportunity for Spain to attract a “quality” traveler. “We have to create infrastructures for them to reach our country”has added.

He has also referred to inland tourism, which he qualifies as “very special attraction” and “with impressive wealth”, at the same time that it has asked to improve its infrastructures to transform its destinations and overcome dependence on those of sun and beach.

Regarding the European funds, the president of CEOE has asked that they be used to develop a “really powerful” tourist PERTE, which allows the sector “take a leap in innovation and future”. In this sense, Garamendi sees the need to develop profound changes in the tourism industry in order to become “one of the important tractors in the country”.

Garamendi vindicates tourism

In this way, the employers join the constant claims on this issue that the Alliance for Tourism Excellence (Exceltur) has been reiterating, which considers the need to reallocate and prioritize funds for a PERTE “urgent”: “There are no more excuses, the sector needs a PERTE now”, according to its executive vice president, José Luis Zoreda.

In addition, he lamented the lack of talent in the sector: “We have to see how it has to be more attractive to young people.” He has put the focus on the hospitality sector and has called attention to a lack of “aptitude” in training programs”.

On the other hand, Garamendi has insisted on the “fundamental” role of tourism in economic activity and the future of Spain. “With the health crisis we realized caccount of the enormous effect and impact it has on the accounts of this country”has highlighted.
