The council’s economic stability allows for greater investment in job creation and well being

The Adeje councillor for good government and finance, Epifanio Díaz Hernández, accompanied by councillors Adolfo Alonso Ferrera and Andrés Pérez Ramos, presented the council’s budget estimates for 2017.  The data was proof of the council’s statement that the local economic stability will allow for increased investment in job creation and the overall well-being of the borough.

The main objectives as outlined by the local government continue to be “job creation, improvements in competitivity, innovation, growth and improvement of the tourist destination, training, and above all the well-being of the people of the borough.  Our main challenge and aim is to be with and beside the people of Adeje, working to offer the best conditions for growth in the borough, where people can live and develop, this is at the heart of all of our initiatives and plans”.

Prudent financial management has marked recent years, and the surplus, which in 2015 was €18 million, allowed the local government to ensure that all outstanding public debts were paid off and make sustainable investments, and today the borough has no debt whatsoever.  Last year’s income gave the council an important margin that Epifanio Díaz explained can be used for emergency situations and for development investments.

Tourism, a key part of the borough

The finance councillor told press that tourism has continued to create wealth and “we are continuing to invest in improving and renovating the local offer, because it is the economic motor that creates wealth and allows our residents a better standard of life”.  He stressed that training in the sector is vital and offered through a number of different borough programmes.
