Thus, announced that the Autonomous Community will raise recover 20 percent of the flow of the drought well that supplies these irrigators and, in turn, will request an increase in the endowment that this well receives from the Vega Media-Murcia aquifer .

The spokesperson of the PPRM has highlighted the work done by the governments of the PP to bury the train tracks, is what they ask neighbors of the southern area of ​​Murcia and for the AVE to arrive which is what the whole region demands ".

He also indicated that "message can be transferred to those who want to set up a business to take advantage of this important improvement in communications, or those who plan to organize a conference in Murcia for next year, if they still do not know if the Region will have of AVE already ";

"the lack of definition of the PSOE is a loss of opportunities for the Region", has ended.
