José Carlos Díez: «Cartagena has to base its economy on new technologies, relying on the UPCT» (08/11/2018)

The Faculty of Business Sciences of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT) has hosted this afternoon a conference by José Carlos Díez, one of the most influential economists on the European scene, who has analyzed the impact of new technologies and globalization in employment.

"Cartagena must further diversify its economy and base it on new technologies, which are essential for growth.

To do this, it has to rely on the UPCT, "said Díez during his conference, in which he explained to attendees how to prepare to access and stay in the labor market to the impact of new technologies, such as robotization and platforms digital, in a globalized world.

Before starting the conference, which has been accompanied by the rector of the UPCT, Alejandro Diaz, the speaker has been questioned on the resolution of the conflict on mortgage taxes and has considered that the Government with his decree retakes the decision initially adopted by the Supreme Court, charging the tax "in those who have an interest in registering the mortgage and that there is legal security".

Also, he has ventured that "as is the current supply and demand in the mortgage market, I do not think that the bank will pass 100% of the tax on the cost to customers."

Considered one of the most influential economists and media, Díez has delivered his Cartagena conference in the era of global technology at a time when global forecasts suggest that 34% of current jobs could have disappeared by 2030 automation and robotization, according to the study 'Will robots steal our jobs?', prepared by the consultant PwC.

And the OECD warns that Murcia is the Spanish region in which more jobs are in danger because of its high proportion of jobs with a strong routine component.
