SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, September 18 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo of Tenerife will facilitate the digitalization of small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) to improve the productivity of the self-employed, as announced by the president of the insular Corporation, Rosa Dávila, who recently held a meeting with the president of the Association of Self-Employed Workers (ATA), Lorenzo Amor, to coordinate the actions between both entities in a meeting that was also attended by the Canarian representatives of the entrepreneurs, Pedro Andueza and Elliot Martín.
During the meeting it became clear that a vast majority of the companies that exist in Tenerife are self-employed, with one or two employees, and that it is necessary to implement measures to help them carry out their work. Thus, it was indicated that rent and energy prices are representing a significant cost for self-employed workers, so a way to help them face these expenses will be studied.
Likewise, Dávila points out that it is possible to support the digitalization of small businesses to be more productive and have an opportunity to start a business on the island of Tenerife. Likewise, the measure of the Government of the Canary Islands to implement the zero quota for new self-employed workers as of January 1, 2024 was highlighted. “This represents support for entrepreneurs, who will find in Tenerife and the Canary Islands the possibility of developing and generate employment,” said Dávila.
