THE regional government’s Tourism delegate Gustavo Rodriguez recently visited La Herradura to meet the owners of beachfront businesses.
He wanted to learn first-hand about the situation that was confronting the sector during de-escalation from the Covid-19 lockdown, he said, and to express his support as the chiringuito beach bars reopened.
Accompanied by the Tourism and Beaches councillor Daniel Barbero, Rodriguez spoke to the president of the Association of Costa Tropical Beach Bars, Francisco Trujillo.
The coronavirus had inflicted “difficult and complicated” circumstances on local businesses, Trujillo said, who also explained to the delegate the sector’s worries, needs and shortfalls
The Junta was preparing to assist town halls carry out contingency plans to tackle the effects of coronavirus crisis on the sector, Rodriguez assured Trujillo.
“But however much help arrives it will be little enough to overcome the huge economic efforts needed to guarantee safety, hygiene and peace of mind on our beaches,” the three men agreed.
