The two main business groups of Vélez-Málaga, the ACEV and the ACET, have for the first time united their efforts in a common front to demand improvements for the two main population centers of the capital of the Axarquía. The presidents of both entities, Fernando Lisbona, for the ACEV, and Antonio Jesús Pastor, for the ACET, have alerted those responsible for the new bipartite municipal government team, PSOE and GIPMTM, of the needs of the locality «in topics infrastructure, parking, blue zone, the new General Urban Plan (PGOU), among others, but still do not take into account our demands, "they said.
Given the attitude of local political leaders, both associations have advocated "the need to establish a permanent working table, with the aim of paying special attention to the management of municipal officials regarding our claims". "Entrepreneurs want answers to demands and a change in our municipality," they argued.
In the opinion of both groups, the business fabric of Vélez-Málaga "is generating employment and wealth, we provide services to the citizens of the region and our visitors." "Therefore, we believe it is essential that the local administration provide answers to the needs we propose, which seek only to improve our municipality," they added. Both presidents took stock of their first meeting: "In the meeting held yesterday, the foundations have been laid to work for a better municipality and there is no one who does not want to go hand in hand to improve our municipal area, improve the employment and improve the economic situation of the Axarquia ».
Finally, both Lisbona and Pastor stressed that local entrepreneurs "share similar problems in each of the nuclei of our city, and therefore, we will work and we will jointly request a meeting with the new government team."
