The president of the Xunta de Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, on Thursday accused the central government of being “committed to not selling cars” and “tripping the automobile sector” with “sterile discussions about certain fuels” that generate “uncertainties “
“It is discussed according to what fuels when the mobile park consumes much less than the ships that pass through the Fisterra corridor or the thousands of airplanes that cross the sky, but nobody argues about its combustion system,” said Núñez Feijóo during an act of the Galician Association of Family Business (AGEF).
Specifically, the Galician president has ironized that “there are people who must be very intelligent who act like this,” while others, including those who have included themselves and businessmen, “do not understand some discussions that translate into that we all go for the electric car. ”
“Prepare for when we have to pay the price of electric power to drive and to see how this is going about the preparation and recycling of batteries, but never wonder how much it consumes the construction of a battery, that that does not proceed and is not fashion ”, has continued.
Núñez Feijóo has manifested in this way after giving the XIV AGEF Family Business Award of Galicia to the Pérez Nieto family, owner of the Pérez Rumbao group, a group that leads the sale of cars in Galicia and, after a hundred years of history, It directly employs 1,300 workers and invoices 380 million a year.
The head of the Galician Executive has taken the opportunity to highlight the “strength” of Galician family businesses, whose main concern, “political instability”, any public manager “must work to ensure stability, essential for any economy to grow from healthy and robust way ”.
“We cannot leave companies alone with the task of guaranteeing stability, but we have to work so that they have it and continue to create jobs,” continued Núñez Feijóo, who has insisted that during his term he has always “taken into consideration” the proposals of the representatives of family entrepreneurs.
He has asked them to remain “united, alive and active” and to have “a preponderant role in Galician business”, since “they are needed and are keys to the economic and social fabric”.
Following this request, Núñez Feijóo has made a tour of the different tax rebates carried out during his tenure, among which he highlighted the inheritance tax, the property transfer tax and, in particular, the exemption in the successions of family businesses, which It has passed from the fourth to the sixth generation.
