The Popular Party will propose a tourist voucher to promote canaries holiday within the archipelago itself, being able to deduct up to 500 euros in income statement for tourist expenses.
As reported by the PP, the objective is to increase the internal demand of the economy in the islands and support the sector by promoting local tourism.
In a non-law proposal (NLP) that will be debated in plenary next week, the popular will raise the need to establish new formulas to support the revitalization and reactivation of the main sector of the Canarian economy.
The proposal that will be defended by the deputy Fernando Enseñat, would mean that Canarian families could deduct up to 500 euros in the income statement for tourist expenses made within the autonomous community, for which the Government of the Canary Islands should add this new deduction in the Autonomous section of personal income tax.
In addition, in the same plenary session, the parliamentary spokesperson and president of the PP of the Canary Islands, Australia Navarro, will ask the president, Ángel Víctor Torres, for the percentage of funds from the State and the European Union destined precisely to the rescue of the tourism sector in the Islas, which last year lost more than 70% of its income and whose slowdown continued to accentuate in the first quarter of the year.
“The recovery of the tourism sector is not going to occur overnight when the vaccination process in Europe ends, it will be a slow and complicated process, and it will need all the support of the administrations, not only with a specific rescue plan , forceful and flexible depending on the evolution of events, but also with tax incentives to relaunch domestic consumption and so that our tourist destination is much more competitive abroad, “he said.
