SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 6 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The plenary session of the Congress of Deputies debates this Tuesday, starting at 3:00 p.m. –peninsular time– the consideration of the bill promoted by the Parliament of the Canary Islands to save the practice of triangular trade in the Canary Islands by companies registered in the Canary Islands Special Zone (ZEC).
The initiative, which implies a modification of the REF, will be defended by the three regional deputies proposed by the Parliament of the Canary Islands: Iñaki Lavandera (PSOE), Rosa Dávila (CC-PNC) and Manuel Domínguez (PP).
The need for this reform, as the explanatory statement of the initiative argues, responds to “economic dysfunctions” that produce “less economic diversification, a higher structural unemployment rate, lower gross domestic product and lower productivity”.
Its objective, the text states, is “to alleviate these effects and offset the additional costs faced by citizens and economic operators established in the Canary Islands.”
