The Mayor of Marbella, José Bernal, and the councillor responsible for tourism, Javier Porcuna, held a meeting with retailers and business owners on Tuesday to look at measures for promoting the city’s famous enclave and also to find solutions to its problems. One of the aspects covered at the meeting was security in the area and the installation of a video surveillance system
According to the press release, the objective of the meeting was to learn about business people’s requests firsthand and to speak to them about “the initiatives the City Council is working on regarding tourism promotion and security”.
The councillor said that during the meeting “we wanted to tell them that this government team takes their grievances seriously and that we’re working to find solutions within the municipal capacities and competences”.
They addressed initiatives like the campaigns to enhance the tourism image in and around the marina as a shopping area at international fairs such as the World Travel Market in London.
They also spoke about the recent push to install video surveillance cameras that he said: “was very well received by the Subdelegation of the Government”.
This project that had previously been proposed by business people in Puerto Baús back in 2006 and was announced in 2008 is now to become a reality and will also be extended to other areas in the city that receive an increased inflow of tourists.
