Citizens have denounced today that the government team of San Pedro del Pinatar "is calling into question the future of the Lo Pagán fair by refusing to put in place measures to support the entrepreneurs that drive it."
This has been assured by the local liberal spokesman, José Luis Ros, who added that âthese businessmen have requested up to two times that the City Council articulate measures to mitigate the negative impact that the current situation of the Mar Menor will have on their businesses, but these They have been rejected by the government team. â
Ros explained that the traders requested in their writings the extension of the concessions of 2019 for two years and a reduction of the rate to 50%, âsimply as measures that counteract the reduction of income resulting from the tourist crisis that this summer looms over the Mar Menor â.
Citizens believe that the business group is âessential for the summer tourist seasonâ and that, like all those belonging to the services sector, âthey are seeing their businesses threatened by the Mar Menor crisis,â added the mayor.
"If we do nothing, it is likely that these entrepreneurs choose other destinations to place their business, if not this summer, if they are to arrive, which would mean a lunge in the already difficult situation of tourism in San Pedro," José Luis Ros has warned.
Citizens believe that the attitude of the government team "is at least irresponsible by refusing to accept the proposals of the traders and not putting on the table any other support and assistance to the sector."
âThe municipal government does not realize the seriousness of the situation, at a time when dozens of businesses are closing in San Pedro del Pinatar.
The Lo Pagán fair is one of the engines of economic revitalization of the municipality and without it the situation of many other hospitality businesses will get worse, âsaid Ros.
From the orange formation it is committed to âlisten to the businessmenâ of the sector to improve the fairgrounds and the conditions in which these entrepreneurs develop their activity: âWe know that there are proposals for improvement by these entrepreneurs, who have not heard without giving any reason.
We must aspire to take a leap in quality in services and facilities and at the same time improve the working conditions of entrepreneurs, âexplained the liberal spokesman, who believes thatâ the global concession to an association may be the best way out for an area so relevant and with so much influx in summer â.
