The Costa Daurada and Terres de l'Ebre lead the investments in tourism of the Government of Spain

The province of Tarragona leads with 35.1 million euros the investments that the Government of Spain has deployed since 2020 in the modernization and competitiveness of the tourism model of Catalonia.

The Secretary of State for Tourism, Fernando Valdés, visited the cities of Salou and Mont-roig del Camp today, November 28, two of the Tarragona municipalities that are benefiting from these investments. “All these resources are contributing to the fact that Salou and Mont-roig del Camp, and with them many other pioneer destinations of our holiday tourism model, have started a path towards new, more sustainable, intelligent tourism development formulas designed for 365 days of the year”, Valdés highlighted at the inauguration of the first Salou Congress Convention that has debated the transformation of coastal destinations.

“This certainly represents a challenge for the management of public services, since a tourist destination provides security, cleaning or beach maintenance services for everyone equally, whether they are residents or tourists. Some services that require financing adjusted to their needs and that require an in-depth analysis such as the one that the Association of Tourist Municipalities is currently carrying out”, he indicated.

Visit to Mont-Roig del Camp

From Salou, the Secretary of State traveled to Mont-roig del Camp to attend the meeting of the Fundació Más Miró Board of Trustees, which the Secretary of State for Tourism supports financially with 100,000 euros per year.

In the afternoon, Fernando Valdés will meet with the mayor of Mont-roig, Fran Morancho, to analyze the progress of the Tourism Sustainability Plan that is being implemented in the town, with a budget of 3.98 million euros financed in equal parts. by the Secretary of State for Tourism, the Generalitat de Catalunya and the City Council.

The Plan contemplates the creation of a convention center to attract small-format congresses and events, the redevelopment of Plaza Girona and the implementation of a covered parking for bicycles, the installation of charging points for electric vehicles, a network of routes between the main population centers for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as the digitization of the Mont-roig tourist office and a plan to support the digitization of tourism companies, among other actions.

Together with Salou and Mont-roig, other of the actions that the Government of Spain is financing in the province of Tarragona are having an impact on the heritage of the city of Tarragona, the Parador de Tortosa, or the towns of Vila-Seca, La Rápita, Amposta, and Deltebre.
