The president of the PP of the Province of Alicante, Toni Pérez, has described Renfe's decision to suspend the Madrid-Alicante AVE tickets in July as "very harmful for all tourism in Alicante" and has asked the Spanish Government to "go back so as not to harm the summer season at a key moment for the recovery of the tourism sector throughout the province."
Pérez explained that this summer is "key" after the pandemic "so that tourism in the province can rise." "Decisions like this are truly outrageous just at a time as important as this," he said.
«It turns out that the province of Alicante is the great forgotten for the socialist governments of Sánchez and Puig. It turns out that they do not invest in key infrastructures for the mobility and structuring of our territory, we are last in investment per capita of the State, they take away the Atocha station as a destination for the AVE from Alicante and now it turns out that the AVE is suspended in July in full start of the high season. What effort is this to make decisions that harm the economy and the future of the people of Alicante? ”, He asked.
“Irreversible damage is being done to the province and the tourism industry. Nobody thinks about this province, we don't care and we won't allow it », he added. In this sense, it has been asked where Ximo Puig is: "Once again we need a president who stands up to his bosses in Madrid to defend the interests of the province of Alicante," Pérez said.
"He does not face when they cut our water, he does not face when they do not give us investments despite the fact that we are in the caboose and he does not face to defend provincial tourism," the president of the provincial PP has settled.
