The PP takes to vote this Tuesday in Congress a long-term strategy to reindustrialize Spain

MADRID, 13 (EUROPE PRESS)

The PP will vote this week in the plenary session of the Congress of Deputies on a long-term strategy with a battery of measures for the reindustrialization of the country, through the so-called ‘Extraordinary Plan Reindus 2020-2050’.

All this in a non-law proposal registered by the ‘popular’ last October with some 40 measures to be developed from a National Agreement for Industry, a new Industry Law and two protocols: the Decalogue for the Updated Industrial Strategy for Reindustrialization 2020-2030 and the Protocol for the Decarbonization of the Spanish industrial sector.

But it is that they also include among their proposals the promotion of a rescue plan with a fund for financial support and capitalization of companies, direct aid and tax rebates, as well as a fiscal rebalancing plan to reduce public spending between 22,000 and 32,000 million euros. euros and establish a deficit and debt reduction path.

Other PP proposals go through a National Plan for bureaucratic simplification to facilitate procedures and licenses and prioritize training formulas and work models that allow sufficient flexibility to avoid dismissals, giving the example of the extraordinary scheme of temporary employment regulation files ( ERTE).

PRIORITIZE INDUSTRY WITH 30% OF ALL EUROPEAN FUNDS

The initiative also contains proposals on how to redirect the Recovery Plan with European funds to industry in order to allocate at least 30% of these resources to projects of an industrial nature and declare them of national interest.

For them, they ask to establish mechanisms that guarantee transparency and competitive competition, facilitate the participation of SMEs and an independent authority for the management of European funds.

UPDATED INDUSTRY STRATEGY

With the Updated Industrial Strategy, the PP asks to adapt the current plans and sectoral agendas to the pandemic situation and to European funds, accelerating the digitization of the sector, facilitating its access to financing and also business growth.

It also calls for reinforcing the uniformity of regulation, improving competitiveness in aspects such as training, energy supply, infrastructure, logistics, transport, capital goods or the protection of industrial property, and supporting internationalisation.

PROTOCOL FOR DECARBONIZATION

Finally, within a maximum period of three months, they request from the Government a protocol for decarbonization that includes a series of actions, including the development of regulations to lower the electricity and gas bill of industries.

But it is that they also ask for a sustainable industry strategy, disruptive technologies for decarbonization, a circular economy program, a digital strategy for the decarbonization of industry, a ‘green construction’ plan, a strategy for basic industry and raw materials sustainable minerals, a plan to boost the rural location, agri-food and proximity industry and a plan for the relocation and industrial establishment of new value chains, among other measures.
