The Pimem awards on Wednesday. | Jaume Morey
On Wednesday evening, the Pimem federation for small to medium-sized businesses held its annual awards ceremony at Palma's Xesc Forteza Theatre. Its president, Jordi Mora, used the occasion to call for greater effort to be made so that European Union funds reach smaller businesses in the Balearics. Ninety-nine per cent of businesses fall into this category, he noted. If they do not have access to the funds, "the economic recovery operation will be a failure".
