PSRM candidate for the presidency of the Community, Begoña García Retegui, criticized the lack of support from the Government of Valcárcel to small businesses in the region, because, in his opinion, "there has been a policy of working with traders to a real boost to regional small businesses, self-employed, which has made much of the traditional trade of small businesses, is in a position of real risk and in many cases abandoning. "
Furthermore, warned that this situation "means not only the abandonment of urban centers of our towns and cities, but also the way to end the lives of many people and the values of small businesses as a group."
Redefining the role of shopping centers
Begoña García believes that trade in the Murcia region needs a new impulse, and in the same way "to redefine the role they have to meet the shopping centers, which have been given too many wings to the detriment of small businesses near and proximity. "
"Not only must work in the areas of differentiation and to create an image, a quality brand, but also helping in energy efficiency, recruitment processes, etc.." He added.
In his view, "we must rethink trade again, sitting with trade associations, and work together with them to improve stable tissue which employs many families in the Region of Murcia, the regional government and some municipalities as the de Mazarrón have so tarnished. "
And is that Begoña García Retegui was speaking in the town of Mazarrón, now visiting on the day number 38 of its "45 municipalities - 45 days to reach everyone," and which has found "the absurdity of the new building food market. "
This building is run with money from the Plan E, intended primarily for a space for music, culture and youth, and has become a market hall has proved to be a real fiasco for the pleasures and all the inhabitants of Mazarrón.
