Bigastro sets an example to other towns

image Leaders from the Socialist Group in the Vega Baja visited Bigastro and met with our mayor, Raúl Valerio Medina, to learn about how the town is embracing new technologies to benefit its citizens.

The municipal company Bigastel is regarded as an exceptional example of how Bigastro is leading the field in providing access to information technology and the Internet for all at highly competitive prices.

Whilst they were in the town, the group were also interested to find out how the solar energy company Eurener has breathed new life into Bigastro. Eurener are market leaders in producing photovoltaic solar panels at their premises located throughout the town.

The socialist leaders have already held meetings with Procosta, to find out what their proposals are for city-planning development. The deputies are particularly keen to find out what ideas Procosta has for revitalising the beleaguered construction industry.

Later on, the party will be visiting the Olé fruit company in San Bartolomé to learn first hand the issues connected with agriculture in the region.

On a personal note: it is good to see our mayor smiling again. Each time I have seen him recently, Valerio has looked like a man with a lot of weight on his shoulders.
