"Without wishing to be alarmist, we think the situation starts to become unsustainable. Each announcement by the Government reform is a negative reaction in consumption and hence on employment in the retail sector. The concentration of bad economic news, and in particular the comments on a possible increase in VAT has led to increased consumer recession produced so far this year, "said Cesar Garcia, Secretary of Sector Policy UPTA Spain.

"All trade development initiatives, especially the retailer run by self-employed are laudable, but we are longing for access to consumer credit, or take action in this regard, and we fear that initiatives such as the simplification of Opening licenses announced at the last Council of Ministers have no effect on trade, much less in employment, "says Garcia.

"From Murcia UPTA continue to believe that it is increasingly urgent that the Government study raises a Comprehensive Plan to Support Trade and regional governments that support them, and not isolated measures, according to the results that shed every month and the importance of this sector in both the economy and employability, "said Mamen Martinez UPTA Coordinator in the Community.
