They consider that “the lack of certainty and economic and institutional security are the scourge of inheritance left by years of nationalist governments”
Generalized lowering of taxes; a new line of public guarantees, simplify administrative burdens and increase industrial production. They are the main electoral proposals of Citizens (Cs) in this campaign within the pact that they have demanded for the Return of companies and the Relaunch of the Industry in Catalonia presented in Barcelona by the president of Cs, InÃ © s Arrimadas , and the vice president of the Community of Madrid, Ignacio Aguado.
Arrimadas claims that “Catalonia’s economic engine will roar and beat again” and that is why he considers that the plan will provide tranquility and legal security and the community will cease to be “a fiscal hell”. In this sense, he recalled that Cs governments are capable of lowering taxes on the middle classes and attracting services. In addition, he promised that if he governs his training, he will improve connectivity and Catalan infrastructures, and specifically he has criticized that line 9 of the Barcelona metro, which lacks its central section, and that it is 10 years late and an extra cost of 16,000 million euros: It cannot be the pharaonic work that it is “.
From the orange party it is considered that “the uncertainty and insecurity that the procés has caused” caused “the greatest number of capital and corporate flight”, mainly as of 2017, although “nationalist governments have been suffocating little little is the productive fabric of an autonomous community in which the industry has gone from representing almost 30% of GDP in the 1990s to 18% in 2018 “. That is why they regret that the “excess of taxes and taxes in Catalonia, the excessive bureaucracy, the lack of modernization and a firm commitment to digitization and, above all, the lack of certainty and economic and institutional security are the scourge of inheritance that they leave years of governments that have prioritized the opportunities of the rupture to those of the Catalan economy “.
Thus, their proposals to change the situation go through a pact in which a “moderate government” prioritizes “the economic and social agenda of Catalonia” with “legal security and stability”. For this reason, they consider that taxes should be lowered, since Catalonia is “the community with the greatest fiscal pressure in Spain. Not only are the autonomous sections of the main tax figures higher than the national average, but also this greater pressure is also concentrated on low incomes “.
They also propose a new line of public guarantees “to provide relief and financial facilities to companies that add to the disastrous fiscal competitiveness of the Generalitat the ravages of Covid-19” as well as “simplify administrative burdens so that companies can focus their efforts to produce and not to fill out paperwork and carry out procedures “with a” Generalitat electronica “.
“We will promote the recognition of the administrative authorizations of other Autonomous Communities to facilitate the establishment of companies in Catalonia and advance in the market unit”, says Cs, who also proposes a “Strategy for the Relaunch of the Industry of Catalonia “with direct aid to Industrial SMEs equivalent to 15% of the billing lost since the outbreak of the pandemic as well as” expansion of the industrial land area of Catalonia, prioritizing those areas with the greatest demand “.
