The Ceuta trade is resuming its activity this week, coinciding with Phase 0 of the de-escalation, but there are many doubts that entrepreneurs and freelancers in the sector have. Restrictions and security measures have caused, above all, uncertainty both for customers and shop managers. A situation in which the national deputy of Vox for Ceuta, Teresa López, has asked the Executive of Pedro Sánchez directly what he is going to do to avoid that many small businesses have to close as indicated by the forecasts of the Spanish Confederation of Commerce (CEC ).
Vox recalls, in this interpellation registered by several of its deputies, that this confederation has demanded that the government implement plans to relaunch small businesses and specific security protocols. However, "the Executive's plan generates a lot of concern in this sector," says Vox to point out that "guarantees are needed to return to activity" but that "the roadmap lacks measures that complement it and allow certainty of continuity. of the operation of their businesses ”.
On the other hand, Vox argues that the hospitality industry in Spain also requires the establishment of new conditions around the ERTE since it is “impossible to maintain the pre-crisis employment figures for the six months following the reopening due to the seasonality of the sector and the decline in tourism ”. Therefore, the party warns that “it is necessary for the reopening of more than 300,000 hospitality establishments a specific protocol or guide that is strictly sanitary, with PPE or hydrogels, since in addition 80% of retail establishments do not have PPE enough ”.
Faced with this situation, Vox asks what the PSOE and United Podemos government will do to "prevent more than 85,000 businesses from having to close throughout Spain." Businesses among which you would find hundreds of those in the autonomous city, where this sector is one of the ones that generates the most jobs.
