Elche Mayor stresses the importance of “consumer confidence” for the Costa Blanca town’s economic recovery

Mayor of Elche Carlos González has stressed the need for “consumer confidence” for the Costa Blanca town’s economic recovery.

AT a meeting of the newly founded group Hostelería Elche he warned of the importance of avoiding further coronavirus outbreaks, and said “we all have a role to play”.

Fifty hoteliers attended the meeting, during which Gonzalez said: “It is crucial that this sector, which is so important for the economy of Elche, is organised and associated with set objectives and collective strategies.

“The fact there is now an association makes it easier for us to understand each other, have dialogue, and can set objectives together.

“We are all aware that we have just come out of a serious situation and have to work together to achieve recovery. We need to be aware that this recovery is going to be gradual.

“In this process there is a fundamental factor, which is the recovery of consumer confidence, something that concerns us all and in which we all have a role to play in maintaining safety measures.”
