Key for the Mediterranean Corridor
The Minister has addressed the Spanish Minister to remember him that "this is not the first agreement regarding road and railway access to the port and we request this one to be the definitive agreement, and that "in Catalonia, there has been a lack of investment for too long now, and the cause is the fiscal deficit, that is, the imbalance between budget and liquidity by the State or the non-fulfilment of the Third Additional Disposition". "We live with it", he explained, "and despite these difficulties, the considerable force of our entrepreneurship initiatives in the business network impulses us".
Calvet wanted to emphasize the strategic importance of these infrastructures, because "we are talking about the Mediterranean Corridor, not a whim, but a basic requirement for the Catalan economy, and the entire East of the Iberian Peninsula. The critical importance of this Corridor has not been understood or there was no will to understand it for many, many years".
