Joan Collins THE leader of the Balearic Governmnet, Jaume Matas, yesterday kept the promise he made at the International Tourism Fair (FITUR) that the Playa de Palma will be refurbished with or without financial help from central Government and that the Regional Executive would go ahead and execute the projects whose work “cannot wait any more”. During the inauguration of the International Work Days for the management, recovery and innovation of the Playa de Palma, organised by the consortium formed for the above purpose, Matas underlined that the project to promote this area was very necessary and, in the first place, the organisation chart of the consortium had to change in order to allow private investment from the Hoteliers Association of the Playa de Palma. Matas remarked that the Balearic Government will give some economic help with the refurbishment “with what is needed” at the same time demanding a halt to the “delaying tactics”. “We are going to start the work, with all possible involvement in the execution of this project” said Matas, who underlined that it would be “bad luck” for those who did not participate, referring to the central Government. “Nobody will stop the project of the Playa de Palma being emblematic and an example to all Spain of what must be the magnificent refurbishment of an established resort with the best conditions” he said. Matas called upon the hoteliers of the Playa de Palma to join the organisation of the consortium for the reform and embellishment of the area to give “more prominence” to the initiative. At the same time Matas said that the Balearic Government will give “sufficient money” to execute the project as long as it is done in a consensual manner.
