Rosa Estaràs promises to intensify her support for the nautical sector after receiving the award “Public Personality of 2011”

The member of the European Parliament Rosa Estarás from the PP party received the award from AENB at the awards ceremony during the Annual General Meeting for her close collaboration with the nautical sector and the defense of its interests in the European Parliament. The Balearic MEP, who was unable to assist the awards ceremony personally and who was represented by close colleague and ex MEP Francisca Bennassar, thanked the president of AENB, Margarita Dahlberg and all the members of the association for the distinction. At the same time she expressed her pride in receiving this award from one of the most important business associations in the Balearics, representing one of the basic pillars of the Balearic economy.

The Balearic MEP commits herself to continued efforts to promote this sector so vital to the economy of the islands, with the goal to minimize the impact of the economic crisis that affects all areas of the economy and also hits the marine sector.

Last year the European Commission formally requested Spain to change the Matriculation Tax on charter boats from other European Union countries, as it infringes the principle of freedom to provide services within the union countries. "From the Group of the European People's Party (EPP), we have attempted through our work in the Parliament to minimize the number of administrative and fiscal obstacles affecting the marine industry. Therefore, the suppression of the matriculation tax is a goal that, with the latest developments, we are getting closer to and I´m convinced will help to reactivate the sector.
