The president of the Junta de Andalucía, José Antonio Griñán, has stated that “we live in dramatic moments due to the functioning of money in the economy”, since “there is no money to discount in companies, there is no money to lend, there is no money to guarantee, there are not sufficient liquidity conditions, the money is also speculating in the financial markets of sovereign debt, there is a financial problem that is not resolved. “
In an interview published this Sunday in the newspapers of the Joly Group and collected by Europa Press, Griñán explained that from Andalusia they are working “doing the things one should do, counting on those who have to do other things as well. other areas “. For this, it is committed to “improving the competitiveness of the Andalusian economy” to what it is dedicated from the first day to “gain competitiveness, with education, with knowledge, and now with the reform of active employment policies”.
In this line, and with regard to the Welfare State, the Andalusian president has indicated that, “in the face of the PP’s desire to lose weight and to privatize it, which is clear and evident, I believe that we should not oppose the resistance of Honduras to leave it such And as it is, we have to reform it, as we maintain the welfare system as it was done in 1945-50, we will be confused, I made the Toledo Pact, I believe in the reforms that consolidate the model “.
For Griñán the subsidies “are investments”. “Andalusia has progressed more the more free the markets have been, in contrast to the incubator theory, I have always said: Andalusia has wide spaces for commercial freedom, and secondly, I said: we are going to help only those who help each other. And I think it’s me who has turned grants into credits, guarantees or financial assets. “
Regarding renewable energies, the secretary of the Andalusian Socialists has also acknowledged that there can be no indefinite subsidies as well as that there is “a poorly formed working population, and that therefore the labor market had to be reformed and fundamentally active policies It’s what we’re doing. “
“The consequence of all this is that perhaps the exit from the crisis will be less euphoric, but more lasting,” he says, adding that “it was not possible for active policies to continue as they were”, which they assume as “a collective failure”. Remember that, after the meeting in the Territorial Council -the PSOE barons-, it was decided to reform the active policies “and we do not remember that it was Andalusia that asked for it. local corporations, workshop schools, craft houses and hiring subsidies.”
In this sense, Griñán has considered that “hiring subsidies are useless, except for people with disabilities, which is why he eliminated the Plan Protect and has changed it to the Project. “Each person has to do a professional project.”
“In Andalusia, historically, there has been a very official culture, it has sent the culture of subsidy, of businessman waiting for subsidies, and little by little it has changed radically.Today the most powerful sector of our agriculture is the least Subsidized The most powerful companies are those that do not have any help or subsidy “said the socialist.
On the other hand, he has asserted that in a year, in the Sustainable Andalusia project, “53 percent of the projects are under way.” There are seventy-seven initiatives: loans for SMEs, investments in energy efficiency, reinforcement of the I + D + io metropolitan mobility plans, and next year we will allocate almost 5,000 million euros to the development of the agreement of social agreement, it is not propaganda. “
“Since 2008, the Board has invested 14,000 million euros to fight against the crisis, 9.5 percent of the gross regional product, measures that have benefited almost two million Andalusians” encourages Griñán.
Reorganization of the public sector
In another order of things, the president of the Board has considered that “clearly that in the decree law there is a restructuring of the public sector that had to be done, and they are telling lies”. “We have convened the general public function table, and the majority of the table adopted an agreement.”
Thus, he assures that “the official is not going to move his condition, and nobody is going to become an official if he does not win oppositions” since there are not enough officials “at all”.
Regarding the integration of Cajasol in the Banca Cívica SIP, Griñán states that “at a normal moment in the financial sector, it is logical that it would have happened as it was with San Fernando and El Monte and what happened with Unicaja and Caja Jaén That was the process, but there has been a convulsion of the financial markets, and that has taken them in other directions. “
And he points out that the only Andalusian failure in terms of savings accounts “was the decision of Cajasur to say no to Unicaja, although it is true that it was something irrational.”
Velasco and chaves
Regarding the decision to abolish the vice-secretary of the PSOE-A after the resignation of Rafael Velasco, Griñán has qualified that he has not used similar cases that occurred during the PP government because “he would be saying that Velasco is guilty, and he is not. He has not done anything illegal, “as his problem” has been a personal matter “and” has nothing to do either with his political action or with his ability “.
On the other hand, in the interview collected by Europa Press, Griñán has acknowledged that in the relationship with the third vice president of the Government, Manuel Chaves, “we disagree in some things, clearly, politically, we can disagree, personally we do not have what”.
Finally, the Andalusian chief executive has opted for the Prime Minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero to become a socialist candidate in 2012, although within the party there is no talk of Zapatero’s rejection in the polls because “there has been a change of Government, a new deputy secretary general, has taken momentum and I think that right now the political situation is improving, so that I am completely convinced, not that the comeback will start, but that elections will be won in the 2012, sure, the autonomic ones and the general ones “.
