The increasing importance of tourism

The Partnership for Economic Development of the Vega Baja, Convega, presented the main projects in which it is involved at its annual meeting yesterday.

The web site, Turivega is one of the key projects aimed at promoting tourism in the 27 municipalities of the region. There isn’t much to see on the site as yet – it is a work in progress!

The other project, aimed at increasing tourism, is the Green Route which links the major sites of natural interest  in  the interior of the region.

At the meeting the Mayor of Callosa de Segura, Javier Pérez said, “ the area has an extraordinary natural patrimony which complements the coastal areas of Torrevieja, Orihuela and Guardamar”.

From a starting capital of 120,000€ , Convega now has a budget of 2,700,ooo€ thanks to subsidies from the Delegation and the Catalan Autonomous Government which should enable it to make a great impact in the region.
