SOCIALIST Party Secretary in Madrid, Tomas Gomez, said yesterday during a visit to Palma that despite attacks by Basque terrorist group ETA on Majorca over the past two weeks, the Balearic Islands remain the jewel in the crown of Spain's tourist industry. Many people from Madrid are going to continue enjoying their holidays here, he said prior to a meeting with Balearic Socialist chiefs. Gomez said that regional President, Francesc Antich, is leading Spain forward in the drive to change the old concept of tourism and develop an industry that is going to help the country out of recession. The Balearics will be playing a key part in the recovery, said Gomez, claiming that no other region of Spain had gone to the lengths that the Islands had in its rethink of tourism as an economic motor. He was referring to the 15 agreements that the regional government has signed with business and union organisations to present a united front to the challenge of altering the direction of the traditional tourist industry.
