The president of the businessmen congratulated the winners of this year and wanted to highlight the role of CEDMA at the time of giving voice to the businessmen of the region.
Dietz praised the actions that are taking place both the public and private sectors of the Marina Alta in spreading our cuisine as a strong point of tourism, but also had words for political protest.
The president of CEDMA said that although tell us that the global economy is improving, this improvement is not reflected in society, with unemployment figures exceeding 4.500.000 in the country, and are especially outrageous if we talk about unemployment in less than 25 years, which exceeds 50%.
In the Marina Alta, these figures speak of that of the 111.908 people who are of working age, there is only 43.000 affiliated to social security. The president said in his speech that "There is much to do, but entrepreneurs need support, incentives, some small stimulus" by the central government.
One of the most applauded his speech was removed from the list of corruption schemes that are currently on the agenda and that, according to Dietz, "They have made citizens do not trust politicians, who are doing a disservice to the image of our land".
The president of the regional entrepreneurs also claimed the train from the coast, a project that is proving "frustrating" since this term seemed the ideal to carry it out. Jokingly, Dietz said the fate of the project has been stalled until 2025 is that "We have ten years to decide where we want the intermodal station."
As made to the structural Plan from the CEDMA showed their support, but regret it seeks to do in eight months "What has not been done in eight years of coalition."
In his farewell, Dietz thanked the support of the committee and the board over the years, especially his secretary, Esteban Cobos, for his dedication to Cercle.
