Economic recovery must happen in order to set priorities and assure the creation of basic infrastructures (railway, environmental, technological, energy, etc.).

In the current economic crisis, we are faced with the paradox of cutting investments in infrastructures in the public sector and the need for them to guarantee short- and medium-term economic growth.

Líneas de acción

  • Searching for proposals in the areas of the public-private participation as an alternative mechanism to the lack of public financing.

  • Participating on and monitoring the planning frameworks, with the objective of guaranteeing a project portfolio which is sufficiently mature in procedural terms, so that once the volumes of public investment are recovered they become effective works.

  • Influencing the determination of the prioritization of public investment mechanisms, with the objective of assuring that they pivot towards priority criteria of economic and social profitability, at the same time that we prioritize those actions oriented to solving the known bottlenecks or allow a better use of the existing infrastructures.

  • Assuring a minimum amount of activity to keep the weight of budget adjustments from falling on the public investment.
