The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has indicated that the return of tourists affected by the bankruptcy of British tour operator Thomas Cook is developing normally and in an orderly manner, and has influenced the importance of the "unity of action" of All administrations.
In statements to the media before participating in the meeting of the Federal Committee of the PSOE on Saturday, Torres said that the contingency plan for the repatriation of tourists is "working well", since "immediate decisions" have been made .
"They are returning to their homes in an orderly and normalized way and that is good news for Spanish tourism because we give an image of strength," said the Canarian president, after remembering that two out of three British tourists go to the archipelago.
Torres has said that the most important thing is to maintain a "unity of action" between all local and central administrations to address this eventuality "that puts the present and future of the Canary Islands at risk", and stressed that measures must be taken to be able to preserve the current jobs.
The Canarian president asked this week that within the budgetary mechanisms of 2019 transfers be made to the Canary Islands that allow dealing with the emergency situation due to the bankruptcy of Thomas Cook.
