The mayor highlighted “the quality and involvement of the establishments in an initiative designed to inject resources into the local productive fabric, thus helping to mitigate, as far as possible, the increase in expenses that establishments must assume as a result of the rise in the cost of services and supplies, at a time when, in addition, the economic consequences of the pandemic remain latent ”. "#LuceBenidorm wanted the establishments of the city not to turn off, an objective that we hope has been met in all cases," he added. 

Through this initiative, the City Council has injected about €950,000 euros into the local productive fabric, "thus reinforcing the support policies for companies, SMEs and the self-employed in Benidorm, which have been constant since the pandemic broke out."
