"

We can bet on photovoltaic energy and the socio-cooperative economy as motors of "a region to the tail in competitiveness"

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

The head of the Secretariat of Industry at Podemos Rafael Esteban explained that the data that place the Region of Murcia, "once again at the tail of the European Regions in industrial competitiveness is the result of a structural problem that for decades Is increasing and to which the government of the Popular Party in the region has not put a solution in more than 20 years "

Thus, Esteban has argued that in the extended history of the popular government, the foundations in which to boost the productive deployment of the region have not been laid, and all the economic growth in the real estate sector has been entrusted.

Neither the previous governments nor of course it has a plan B to advance in productivity and thus we find an economy anchored in the excessive weight of sectors of low added value and a productivity based on the reduction of low wages, Subjected to an incipient precariousness that entails labor instability and underemployment.

Meanwhile the process of deindustrialization in the Region is accelerating, depending almost exclusively on the agri-food sector.

In this sense, he stated that we have to work in the diversification of industrial sectors and not leave aside one of the most viable and profitable outlets for the Region, such as the industry related to renewable energy and more specifically the sector Photovoltaics, as well as publicly stimulated socio-cooperative economies, communication logistics nodes or R & D & I investments related to the implementation of high technology industry.

Renewable energies mean for Murcia "a great opportunity, in the economic and labor field, since we are from the European regions with more sun, so any investment in photovoltaic solar energy in Murcia will be 30% more profitable than in Central Europe, while currently Germany is leading the way at a global installation and Spain has suffered a setback in this area due to regulatory cuts. "

Finally, The Secretary of Industry of the Region of Murcia has recalled that after the meetings held with agents of the renewable energy sector such as ANPIER, the Sustainable Development Foundation of Murcia and AREMUR, data have been provided where investment in this sector could create In Murcia at least 5,000 jobs a year, so that "to increase industrial competitiveness in the Region of Murcia, it is necessary, bet on strategic sectors such as renewable energy, as well as undertake a policy of Re-industrialization that ensures decent and stable work ".
