The Balearic Government’s joint efforts alongside private investment companies to improve the face of tourism in Calvia is set to continue.
Calvia.—The president of the local government Jose Ramon Bauza took a tour of the municipality yesterday morning and, impressed with the progress witnessed and vowed to continue to work alongside local businesses to attract more “quality tourism” to the area.
The current government has more than once expressed its belief the area is set to benefit from a strong public and private sector partnership, and with over 80 million euros being invested in the area over the last few years by private companies like the Meliá Hotels International, Bauza, alongside the Mayor of Calvia, Manuel Onieva and the local Tourism Councillor Eugenia Frau, spent their morning walking the streets of Magalluf, talking with local hotel and shop owners to understand what else can the partnership improve.
Speaking in front of the Hotel Jamaica, which is set to be demolished and transformed into a top star hotel in the next two years ( an investment worth 25 million euros), Bauza expressed his satisfaction with what he saw saying “this was the tourism image the Balearics wants to project”. “We want to continue to work alongside local hotel and shop owners, and the projects we are involved and wish to be involved in reflect that. We need projects that improve the “quality of tourism” in the area and that more importantly create more jobs.”
