The counselor Violante Tomás referred to the agreement and participation that should give light to the Pact.

"The fight against gender violence is the commitment of public and private agents, so we ask the participation of all levels for drafting the importance of the measures that will include," he said.

In this regard, he recalled that the plenary session of the Congress of Deputies approved last Thursday the 213 measures to implement the State Pact on Gender Violence.

This year, the Community allocated a total of 2.2 million to the prevention of gender violence and the care of the victims.

The Regional Network of Specialized Care Centers for Victims of Gender Violence (Red CAVI) of the Ministry of Family and Equality of Opportunities, recorded until August a total of 16,426 care, compared to 14,932 last year.

The Community, through the program of Internationalization of the Company driven by Info, allocates a total of 1.2 million euros to help more than 200 SMEs in the Region to improve their position in foreign markets and increase their exports .

The Minister of Employment, Universities and Enterprise, Juan Hernández, stressed the importance of this type of programs so that regional firms, and especially SMEs, can face their internationalization with the greatest guarantees of success.

Hernandez said that "one of the keys to the growth of the regional economy has been the firm commitment of companies to international markets, as reflected by the fact that the export base has grown by 42 percent in recent years to 4,825 companies of last year ".

"Our goal is to keep raising that figure to 5,000 during this year, but we also want to do it in the best conditions, after analyzing their situation and knowing the markets and more appropriate forms of marketing for their products," added Hernandez .

This program is part of the Region's External Promotion Plan, a pioneering tool managed by Info, in which the main agencies involved in business internationalization, such as the Chambers of Commerce of the Region, are present.

The plan, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), involves the implementation of more than 120 actions to achieve, among other objectives, € 10 billion in exports and 5,000 exporting companies.
