Citizens will expand the Network of Smart Tourist Destinations in the Region

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

The training wants to implement a National Cultural Tourism Card and use the IMSERSO as a reinforcement of the Network, which only counts Murcia as an associate

Citizens want tourism to be one of the economic locomotives and job creation both nationally and regionally.

The sector, which brings together 11% of regional GDP and 13 out of every hundred jobs, "needs a decided boost and Citizens are willing to give it," highlighted the deputy aquiline Jose Luis Martinez in a visit to Caravaca de la Cruz.

"It is necessary to modernize our tourist offer, especially in mature destinations such as the Region, and enhance it as much as possible.

In that sense, we want to create a National Cultural Tourism Card that serves as an element of promotion and dissemination, "said Martinez, who has specified that" this card will integrate all cultural, heritage and tourism, and would add the technologies of the 'Big Data 'to the promotion and dissemination. "

Citizens will also promote an intermodal ticket for young people, so that "they can better know their own country, as a kind of internal Interrail".

In addition, Ciudadanos wants to use the IMSERSO as a reinforcement of the demand of the Intelligent Tourist Destinations (DTI), which was launched in 2012 "and remains stagnant – Murcia only belongs to the network – in the face of the negligence of the local governments of PP and PSOE ".

The DTIs invest to revalue the destinations in five main areas: governance, technology, innovation, accessibility and sustainability, "promoting an inclusive vision of the destination including all its areas," said Martínez, who added that Ciudadanos "will promote the implementation of this network in the Region, with Caravaca de la Cruz as the first option in order to take advantage of its full potential, especially in religious tourism ".

In the Plaza del Arco of one of the five holy cities of Christianity, the deputy, accompanied by Miguel Garaulet (number one to Congress) and Francisco José Caparrós (Senate), lamented that "the neglect and mismanagement of the regional government have already wasted twice the enormous opportunity that the Jubilee Year represents ".

In his opinion, "these are lost opportunities to take advantage of religious tourism that moves more than 300 million people a year and a Jubilee Year that can be a shock to a city, as we have seen in the case of Santiago de Compostela."

In this sense, Martinez has highlighted the various initiatives carried out by Citizens to promote both the celebrations of the Horses of Wine and the Jubilee Year in the Regional Assembly and Congress.

"Even our president Albert Rivera wanted to know firsthand the potential of Caravaca de la Cruz and paid a visit to the city, demonstrating our commitment to its promotion as a tourist destination," added the orange parliamentarian.

Specifically, the weight of this group is 39.71 percent today, the lowest figure since May 2012, when they accounted for 39.55 percent.

This date was so far the last in which the 'weight' of this group was less than that 40 percent.

Currently, the Region has 106,939 unemployed people in total, of which 42,467 have more than 12 consecutive months without employment, or at least have been unemployed for twelve of the last eighteen months.

This group presents greater difficulties of access to the labor market, and is also composed mostly of people over 45 years.

As regards the scenario of the last twelve months, 3,258 long-term unemployed people have accumulated less, which represents a drop of 7.13 percent since February of last year.

This drop is three points higher than the general decline in unemployment in the region during that same period (4.13 percent) and reflects that prolonged unemployment falls more than the 'general'.

The Minister of Employment, Universities, Business and Environment, Javier Celdrán, stressed that "people who are unemployed for so long lose competences, and their attitude in the search for employment can be affected, which is why it is important to offer constant support , intense, personalized and that analyzes in detail those obstacles ".

The current proportion of 39.71 percent of long-term unemployed over the total unemployed is 1.28 points less than the 40.99 percent they represented a year ago, and 3.79 points compared to 43.50 percent. percent that was registered two years ago.
