The tourism of the region of Cartagena, burdened by the inability of the local government and regional marginalization (06/08/2018)

In the last days we have verified, through the information issued in different media that collect the data of the associations of the sector, the bad tourist data that shows the month of July in terms of hotel occupancy and in relation to the expenditure made by tourists in bars, restaurants and terraces.

This is translated, according to the associations that agglutinate these establishments, in a 10% less of overnight stays in hotels of the Region, and 15% less of consumptions.

Tourism has decreased compared to the previous year.

In MC we understand that it is necessary to deepen in the causes of this decrease in arrivals in summer to the main tourist pole of the Region and one of the references of the Mediterranean, evident reality in spite of the political leaders in the Town Hall and in San Esteban.

Local leave and regional marginalization

The destination Cartagena is the victim of an absolute abandonment and lack of interest on the part of these governments.

'Caostejón' and López Miras, leaders without ideas and who accidentally occupy their positions, focus their attention on remaining in their chairs and that everything remains the same, neglecting a crucial sector for our region.

For the spokesman of MC in the Consistory and general secretary of the formation, Jose Lopez, "in the City council and the Autonomous Community it is worked of backs to Cartagena, they do not promote it, while their leaders dedicate themselves to the self-portrait".

"In the regional case, they have diverted the 'EuroVelo' cycle route to make it pass through the capital, as they used to do with roads and rail lines, and the biggest milestone in the municipality was a bus, only one, labeled in English and walking around France to promote Cartagena. "

The constant work throughout the year is fundamental, as pointed out by López.

"Now that tourists return to Arab destinations, we must make an effort so that the activity does not suffer, because, as we have always said, Cartagena has all the natural and heritage charms to improve its data, not to suffer from disability. of the administrations ".

For the leader of MC, "the regional government ignores Cartagena in tourism fairs, which does not give the prominence it deserves.It is more concerned with trying to divert all possible tourism to the city of Murcia and sell all our tourism product eliminating the 'Cartagena' brand, something experts in regional and international communication and tourism have been constantly warning. "

"As they also warn that, if the tourism budget is invested in local media, it does not generate the useful impacts, so it is necessary to professionalize this management and expand the horizons", he continued.

Brand 'Costa de Cartagena'

The mayor of MC recalled that "in the month of May we introduced an amendment in the municipal budget to create and promote our region under the brand 'Costa de Cartagena.' With this we put at the disposal of the socialist government the idea and 100,000 euros to finance it Three months later no progress has been made and we are concerned about the published data. "

José López, aware of the importance of the sector, has announced that "if the mayor does not do so urgently and immediately before these data, at the next plenary session we will demand the convocation of the Tourism Council that in the month of last June I met, after 31 years without being convened, in order to boost the future of tourism in Cartagena.It is a forum that, like Commerce, the socialists have abandoned for their lack of ideas and capabilities.

"It is essential to work with business and teaching specialists, such as those who have launched the UPCT Degree in Tourism, the launch of the 'Costa de Cartagena' brand in national and international markets and fairs, and the demand for the improvement in infrastructures and transport to reach Cartagena, which must be the turning points to promote an activity whose potential clashes with the lack of vision of politicians ", concluded the Cartagena leader.
