Raquel Sánchez justifies the increase in investment in Catalonia for social vertebration and infrastructure deficit

The Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, Raquel Sánchez, has justified the increase in investment in infrastructure in Catalonia, which will amount to 2,430 million euros to the need to increase "social vertebration" and alleviate the "Infrastructure deficit" of the region. For the minister, it is a mistake to see these figures in comparative terms between regions and analyze them "in political terms".

In absolute figures, investment in Catalonia bends to that of Madrid, which lowers 8.4% compared to 2021 and remains at 1,151 million. This figure is less than the 1,255 million that received the community in the last budget of Rajoy. In terms per inhabitant, Sánchez's commitment to Catalonia is 83% higher than the one planned for Madrid, as the world today reports.

The 2,430 million destined to Catalonia are equivalent to 312 euros per inhabitant, 83% more than in Madrid and 16% more than in Andalusia, for example.

The growth of investment in Catalonia next year is 5.6% compared to 2021 figure that doubles from Madrid, which falls 8.4% compared to 2021 and remains at 1,151 million.

The President of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso has referred at the Regional Assembly to this decompensation of investments and has affirmed that Madrid brings "the common Box of all Spaniards three times more than Catalonia and in the funds goes to Receive half ".

The Minister has highlighted that the Catalan railway infrastructure will be allocated 853 million euros, of which 679 million will go to Rodali, the commuter network.

As for the 'Bono Rental' of 250 euros for young people up to 35 years, Sánchez has affirmed that it will take effect on January 1 and will benefit some 70,000 people.
