Some 200 personalities from the economic and institutional world attended today the V Summit organised by Barcelona Oberta at El Molino, to participate in the debate on how to promote the capital of the city of Barcelona.. In his concluding speech, the president of the organisation, Gabriel Jené, made a public plea to administrations, central government, city council, Barcelona tourism, chamber of commerce, employers, and all business organisations to call for a City Economic Plan that puts Barcelona back in ON mode.
The president of Barcelona Oberta, Gabriel Jené, has called for dialogue with politicians to overcome the current problems and has claimed that the Consistory’s management is not very “business friendly”.
Jaume Collboni, in the debate with Enric Sierra, deputy director of La Vanguardia, announced an increased budget in 2020 for the promotion of the city, and stated that he “cannot conceive of progress without public-private collaboration”.
The presidents of Foment, Josep Sánchez Llibre, and Pimec, Josep González, have encouraged politicians to do the same thing that employers and trade unions have achieved: “agreement and dialogue”.
