The Association of the Nautical Enterprises in the Balearic Islands (AENIB) had a meeting with the counselor of Economy and Competitiveness, Joaquin García, to talk about the future of the Palma Boat Show as well as the Nautical Sector Strategic Working Group, in which AENIB is actively involved.
This was the first meeting of the two parties since Mr García was appointed counselor about a month ago. He emphasized the importance of the nautical sector for the Balearic economy and expressed his understanding of the problems that were laid out to him in this first meeting with the representatives of AENIB. During the meeting the discussions ranged from how to invigorate the sector, how to convey the importance of the environment of the islands and how to generate added value to the model of tourism we have on the Balearics.
The President of AENIB, Margarita Dahlberg, requested that the work within the Nautical Sector Strategic Working Group is not going to be paralyzed due to the recent changes in the government structure. Dahlberg assured that “all the issues laid out in the Working Group are of vital interest for the entrepreneurs of the nautical sector”.
The counselor showed his appreciation of the work carried out with Palma Boat Show 2013 and demonstrated his inclination to repeat with with the same formula next year.
In the meeting participated, apart from the counselor and the president of AENIB, Juan Antonio Alarcón and Alejandra Márquez.
