Staff Reporter THE Balearic leader, Jaume Matas was confident yesterday that the change of government in the Islands following last May's regional elections was the turning point in the recovery of the tourist industry. The previous government, claimed Matas, had brought the market to the edge of the abyss. After his attendance at a Popular Party meeting on tourism which was brought to a close by Mariano Rajoy, successor to Prime Minister José María Aznar, the Balearic leader spoke of the desolate panorama that greeted him in the tourist industry when he assumed his post in regional goverment following the elections.
