The Minister of Territory, Damià Calvet, and the Secretary of State for Infrastructure, Pedro Saura, will preside over the meeting, which is being held in Barcelona and in which, as explained by the Minister this week, the list of infrastructures in march in Catalonia and those that are pending.

It will also address how to compensate for the lack of investment in infrastructure of the State in the community and the Catalan government, they say, will be "demanding" with the Ministry of Development to try to "resolve" the investment deficit in this area.

On September 26 and in the first meeting between Calvet and the Minister of Development, José Luis Ábalos, it was agreed to convene this commission, which Calvet said will serve to finalize the outstanding debt with Catalonia.

A day before, the Ministry of Finance and the Generalitat reached a principle of agreement by which the central executive committed to settle 1,459 million of the 6,700 million outstanding debt with Catalonia in four years.

Of the 1,459 million debt, 759 million correspond to the third additional provision of the Statute.
