The president of the Generalitat, Carlos Mazón, has considered it essential to hold a meeting with the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda in order to "unblock and obtain the necessary authorisations" to launch the project of the intermodal station Alicante.
He stated this during the presentation of the Awards of the Business Union of the Province of Alicante (UEPAL), in which he described the intermodal station as a priority issue for the Council and fundamental for the future of the province of Alicante, and has emphasised that, after eight years of inactivity, "there is finally a government in the Generalitat that is taking this claim seriously".
On the other hand, he recalled that, about to complete his first hundred days at the head of the Valencian Government, the Council has already approved the project to eliminate the Inheritance and Donations Tax and the preliminary project to reduce taxes to access a home, in addition to having initiated a tax reform that includes a package of social deductions in the personal income tax for the lowest incomes. In the same way, the head of the Valencian executive has emphasised that he has started the process to eliminate the tourist tax and has proposed the creation of an autonomous water board to make "the problem of water a regional matter and not only Alicante".
In statements to the media, Carlos Mazón has also assured that he has finished with the "most expensive government in history" and has reduced the number of advisers in half, with which a saving of 20 million has been achieved euros "only in politicians' salaries".
During his speech, the president highlighted the work of UEPAL in the defense of the great challenges of the province of Alicante, such as "water that deserves and does not arrive"; the investments of the General State Budgets "that our land deserves"; the lowering of taxes "to generate wealth, cohesion and social welfare, which has not arrived for years"; the elimination of bureaucracy, or the large infrastructures necessary for the province of Alicante.
Mazón has emphasized the importance of responding to the needs of the productive sectors through the implementation of balanced public policies, which cover, with a pluralistic view, the entire territory of the Valencian Community.
Likewise, the head of the Council has recognised the work of the awardees in this fifth edition as generators of employment and well-being, and has highlighted their commitment to the territory and the interests of the province of Alicante.
UEPAL is the entity that represents the interests of all entrepreneurs and companies in Alicante and the awards it grants are a recognition of the work of those people and entities that have worked, and are working, for the associative and business world of the province of Alicante.
In this edition, which was also attended by the Minister of Innovation, Industry, Trade and Tourism, Nuria Montes, UEPAL recognized the work of Eladio Aniorte by awarding him the award in the category of career and associationism; the honorary award went to Juan José Sellés; the prize for promoting the provincial economy went to Provia; in the training category, the work of the Driving School Association of Alicante was recognized, and the award for the structure of the province went to the Elche and Comarca Business Association (Aesec).
