The maximum grant any one small business can apply for is 24.000 euros while industry can apply for a maximum of 140.00 euros for modernisation projects. Josep Juan Cardona said that applications are welcome now as he hopes to have studied all the proposals before the start of the summer recess so that small business projects are not held up by red tape. The Minister also revealed that small, family hotel enterprises are also entitled to regional government aid, especially with regards to promotion and publicity. Looking at the global picture, Josep Juan Cardona said that, over the course of this year, the government wants to help give the region's small business sector, from jewellers to software producers, a complete make-over to make it more modern, competitive and boost exports. He explained that the aims are twofold. While helping to consolidate the small business sector, the government also wants to diversify the region's economy which is still 80 percent dependent on the tourism sector. As with the tourist industry, the local business and industrial sector is being encouraged, and assisted, in improving quality and design of its products and government grants are also being made available for product investigation and development.
