state revenue in the elaboration of the
budget laws of the Canary Islandssince they account for approximately 70% of the resources compared to 18% from those coming from the own tax system and the remaining 12% from European funds.

€10.1 billionalmost 1,000 million euros more than the initial 2022, which
