Celestí Alomar.

The Balearic Minister for Tourism, Celesti Alomar, defended the tourist tax yesterday in an interview with the Bulletin. Alomar said that one euro a day (the actual sum of the tax) was a small charge to pay to improve and upgrade the islands. He said that a wide range of projects would benefit from the money the tax would raise, ranging from improving the tourist resorts to providing financial help for local farmers and buying public land to transform into park areas. Alomar said that other areas of Spain were also considering introducing similar levies. The tax comes into force on May 1. The tourist minister called for tourists to show solidarity and pay the surcharge. The full interview with Alomar will appear in tomorrow's paper.
