JAVEA’s local government is currently meeting local business associations linked to the tourism sector in a bid to create an inclusive economic strategy.
The local government is convinced that it is more important than ever to be united and listen to all voices in order to define strategies that can help the local economy withstand the financial crisis triggered by the health crisis.
Objectives include stimulating consumer spending, attracting new residents who telework from home and establishing the municipality as a destination for mini-breaks and weekends.
Javea’s mayor Jose Chulvi also wants to sound out the municipality’s commercial sectors regarding the support they expect from the town hall and to learn about their personal plans to encourage spending.
Spokespeople from all groups on Javea council were present at the first meetings as, in contrast to national politics, political parties are pulling together and pooling ideas, enabling the local Administration to provide the local population with social and economic support.
Chulvi emphasised that Javea has excellent tools to work with in the present circumstances, listing its open spaces for outdoor activities, good year-round weather, low Covid-19 rates, plus excellent commercial and accommodation companies offering quality service with maximum health guarantees.
He revealed that the Sueño con Xabia (I dream of Javea) campaign that was launched last May on the social media was viewed 637,000 times and reached an estimated three million people.
Meanwhile, the mayor said, the town hall’s Tourism department figures confirmed that tourist occupation was not only maintained this summer but, against all the odds, was higher than in 2019.
