Calvo praises the "constructive meaning" in the State-Government dialogue
"What I perceive and I find very comforting to say here is a capacity for respect, dialogue and encounter in the problems that affect the life of Catalonia. I find almost every day a lot of coordination and constructive sense (…) I think this is already seen by almost everyone except those who have decided not to help anything, "said Calvo.
The vice president recalled that Catalonia has the opportunity to have 2,200 million euros more if they go ahead with the state budget for 2019. "Spain needs some budgets to be removed from the skeletal level in which the right has left the welfare state and to comply with the communities and with the commitments acquired with Catalonia, "he concluded.
