The president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, has ruled out that national trips can be restarted at Easter as pointed out by the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, because “we are still in a very serious situation” and “it cannot be launched no relaxation message. “
Puig, in an interview with RNE, pointed out that “of course we would like, because for us tourism is a fundamental sector, but today thinking of Easter as an objective is not in our spirit, but in our The mood is to play game by game “.RELATED
In this sense, he has expressed his desire that “hopefully sooner rather than later” the “sufficient conditions” will be met but “we are still in a very serious moment, with more than 4,000 people admitted to hospitals, and although the incidence is decreasing the situation continues very complicated”. For this reason, he has warned: “We cannot give any signal for relaxation because doing so at this time would be very negative.”
In addition, he explained that this opening should be “not only in Spain but in the rest of Europe because otherwise our fundamental customers could not come either”. “Of course I would like, like the minister, that vaccination could be accelerated as much as possible and begin to normalize the situation, but now we are not looking at that goal yet,” he added.
