The regional Executive has presented to the Croem employers’ association and to the majority unions, CC OO and UGT, the calendar and work methodology of the future Law for the Promotion of Investment and Public Efficiency of the Region, which it intends to approve in the Governing Council in the first quarter of 2022.
The initiative has in its original scheme with objectives called ‘internal’ and focused on public efficiency; and another ‘external’ block focused on the dynamization of investments, which converge to promote economic and social development and the generation of quality employment and well-being. Within the block of public efficiency, the regulations will focus on reducing unproductive costs and favoring public-private collaboration. Thus, it will seek to accelerate the Strategy for the Transformation of the regional Public Function, the centralization of public procurement and purchasing will be expanded, the digitization of processes will prevail, it will facilitate public-private collaboration and “innovative public procurement”.
Likewise, the necessary legal framework will be created for the Region to increase its capacity to attract investments, further reducing administrative procedures and deadlines, promoting developed and orderly land, more electronic administration, tax incentives, support for the ‘softlanding’ of investments and further accelerating licenses for strategic projects.
It is the third regulatory step in the Community’s policy to accelerate investments and reduce bureaucracy. There are already two previous laws in that sense.
The regional government will promote an open participatory consultation on these axes, sessions will be held with key institutions in the promotion of investments – with 11 sector tables, city councils, large companies, industrial estates and financial entities – and the public sector (ministries, Community staff , suppliers, local entities and other communities). In addition, they will have the advice of the United Nations business facilitation unit.
