The economic outlook that crosses Spain is slowing down the economic recovery expected by the government. Although in the moncloa they are convinced of overcoming the crisis caused by the COVID pandemic, inflation - with the price rise - the energy crisis and social tension with mobilizations of different sectors have led Peter Sánchez to Give "instructions to accelerate the activity of the executive and thus consolidate the economic recovery."
This is explained by government sources, which point out that two councils of ministers will be held here at the end of the year, and not one as is the usual. Thus, staying five weeks for December 31, up to 10 cabinet meetings could be celebrated.
The Government waits for this week "very good employment data and affiliation to social security", which will be known on Thursday, but the economic horizon foreseen for it is slowed down and explanatory times for recovery, which is entailing uncertainty and tension to society, with mobilizations of the employer of transport, farmers, hairdressers, metal workers, pensioners platforms or even companies that decide to stop their activity before the rise in the price of light. To this is added that, for example, Brussels recently cut its growth forecasts for Spain.
Precisely, this Monday, the Minister of Agriculture, Fishing and Food, Luis Flat, showed in the Forum Europe its "shall of dialogue and in agreement" with agrarian organizations and with the rest of the food chain, to give a negotiated response before The protests summoned into the field for prices at source and increased costs.
Faced with an audience in which they were responsible for the three main agricultural organizations, Asaja, UPA and COAG, and also of the main federations and employers of the Food Chain, flat stated that the Executive wants the agreement, but warned that "this It is not a monologue of the government, it is a choral work and each one has its role. "
Faced with this scenario of mobilizations, although in the executive they point out that they do not fear that they go further because "there is no conductive thread," Sánchez wants to make visible that the government moves, acts, makes decisions. Hence the purpose of intensifying the Executive Agenda. He is focused mainly on the economic agenda, is what is prioritized from here at the end of the year. On the table are issues and debates as transcendental as pensions, labor reform or minimum wage rise for 2022.
On November 12, the Executive formally requested the European Commission for the disbursement of 10 billion euros of the Next Generation European funds, which will not reach the country until next year.
This disbursement would be added to the 9,036 million euros that Spain has already received in summer, when the recovery plan was approved and that amount was released as an advance.
This same Tuesday, the Government plans to give Green Light to the Draft Law on Creation and Growth of Companies and is foreseen that the Royal Decrees on pensions and food chain can be approved in Congress. Pensioners and farmers are, right now, two sectors where there is uncertainty.
This Monday, both Sánchez and the second vice president, Yolanda Díaz, meet in a separate way with the unions - it is the second time they see them in a few weeks. On this occasion, the pretext of both is to meet with the Secretary General of the European Confederation of Trade Unions, Luca Vententini, visits by Spain, but appointments occur in full dialogue for labor reform and the minimum wage, and before the reluctance that They hold entrepreneurs.
Vice President Diaz has insisted that labor reform will be approved by the Council of Ministers before the end of the year.
In addition to the preliminary draft of the creation and growth of companies, since the economic vice-presidency of Nadia Calviño want to refer the Council of Ministers before the STARTUPS Act and the Reform of the Bankruptcy Law ended, which aim to accompany the Companies throughout their vital cycle in order to increase productivity, attract talent and create quality employment.
From the Government, they also emphasize that this week the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization will be gathered in Spain, what they understand will help "consolidate" Spain as a safe tourism reference country. All in a context where the omicron variant is causing restrictions on mobility at an international level and where a sixth wave seems to consolidate in certain countries.Updated Date: 29 November 2021, 08:44
