Industry and tourism will continue to be the locomotives of the regional growth of Cartagena (05/12/2018)

The president of COEC reiterates that without the pending infrastructures the economic growth of the Shire is "committed"

Industry and Tourism will continue to be the locomotives of the regional growth of Cartagena, while the Agri-food sector, also with positive development figures, is being "constrained" by the lack of water guarantees, according to the president of COEC, Pedro Pablo Hernández, during the opening of the XVI Conference for Business Managers of the Region of Cartagena.

Hernández summarized the main aspects of the 'Strategic Analysis of the Economy of the Region of Cartagena', carried out together with the Polytechnic University of Cartagena, in which a sectorialized radiography of the current situation is made, while a series of future proposals.

Thus, the study points to the need to redouble efforts in Trade and Training, the challenge of betting on New Technologies and the 'handicap' of achieving greater support from the Administrations.

In this sense, Hernandez stressed that this analysis is "the guide that should help us to make decisions, given that it sheds light on how the economy of the Comarca is, with a significant degree of depth and providing recommendations."

In his opinion, the great conclusion of the study is that "the crisis is already overcome and companies evolve favorably", with a job that is showing positive signs of recovery.

Despite this, said that "within this growth we are already noticing this year a moderation, which we also foresee for 2019".


Precisely, the president of the businessmen of Cartagena reiterated that, without the outstanding infrastructures AVE, Mediterranean Corridor, Logistics Activities Zone, Port of El Gorguel and regional airport--, the economic growth of the Comarca is "compromised".

For this reason, he asked the administrations involved to "not delay things so long".

"This is going at a very slow pace, because the dates go by and we are still without what we demand so much: the facts," said Hernández, who complained that "the allotments are produced once and for all."

The day was inaugurated by the president of the Autonomous Community, Fernando López Miras;

the mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón;

and the presidents of the employers of the Region of Murcia (Croem), José María Albarracín, and Cartagena (COEC), Pedro Pablo Hernández.


The first intervention served to make a semblance of the strategic analysis of the Comarca de Cartagena carried out by the Department of Economics of the Polytechnic, and which was presented by the director of the COEC-UPCT Chair, Rosa Badillo Amador.

The study is structured by economic sectors, so that the most significant data of each of them are collected and detailed.

Then, the researchers of the UPCT responsible for analyzing each economic sector reported their findings through their corresponding papers, being the first Antonio García Sánchez, who threw the situation of tourism in the region of Cartagena.
