Reyes Maroto is optimistic about the situation at the Volkswagen plant


The Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, has been optimistic about the situation of the Volkswagen plant in Valencia and has endorsed the latest statements by the president, Pedro Sánchez, in Brussels, where he stated that they will work with the group so that the Sagunto battery gigafactory is “a reality”. At the inauguration of the A Costa da Morte parador, in Muxía (A Coruña), Maroto has expressed himself in the same terms as Sánchez in previous hours, recalling that in addition to the Perte aid for the electric vehicle, there will be other lines of state aid .

The minister explained that the definitive call has already been resolved, “which is very good news”. “They have been able reach those 880 million euros of investment in projects tractors we finance. This marks the Government’s commitment to the project, to electromobility”, he assured.

He has pointed out that from the Executive are “excited” to work with the company, “but also with other investment projects.” “We are excited about the boost that the Government is giving to the project and for the second call, with new lines of support in which we are working to strengthen the industry and that the company needs”, he commented.

“But also — he continued — attracting other projects that we evaluate and that fit, not only in the second line that we are going to convene, but also within the country project, within the Electric and Connected Vehicle Perte, whichEU has already mobilized 2,000 million euros and that stimulates demanda, investing in accelerating the installation of recharging points. I believe that having this type of industrial investment is one more step to continue investing in industry, generate employment, structure the territory and guarantee the future”, he pointed out.

For Maroto, “talking about electromobility is talking about the future” and for this reason, he has claimed, the Government invests “in this type of plant, facilitating the purchase so that an ecosystem different from the current one is effectively developed, based on combustion, thinking about the future, and thus guaranteeing employment and wealth, but especially environmental protection”. The statements by Maroto and Sánchez come after the doubts expressed by the German company about the volume of investment aid that they may receive from the electric vehicle PERTE.
