He said that this is "the result of the commitment to the foreign markets of companies such as Agrícola Navarro de Haro, with a history marked by its intense search for quality and innovation." The representative of the Andalusian Government once again highlighted the potential of Almeria's horticulture, which with just over 57,000 hectares of crops generates more than 2,000 million Euro of production value and more than 3,150 million Euro of marketing value. Likewise, it creates more than 110,000 direct and indirect jobs and a structure for some 240 companies devoted to handling and processing.
Lack of water
Sánchez Haro lamented that the development of all this potential "is being limited by the lack of infrastructure, especially as regards water and transport." For this reason, he insisted on the need for collaboration from the administrations and the private sector. In this regard, he recalled that the lack of water resources is a matter that has long been of concern for Almeria, "where we know how to make the most of every drop of water to obtain the highest value. It is necessary to have the necessary infrastructures to guarantee the availability of this resource," assured Sánchez Haro, who added that the Government "is working hard in this regard, as reported by President Susana Díaz herself to the Water Board of Almería."
In the field of transport, the Councillor believes that "it is essential to have strategic infrastructures, such as the Mediterranean Corridor, with a positive impact of some 300 million Euro per year for Almeria, Murcia and Alicante". In short, he concluded, "we have to do everything within our power to ensure that this province can continue developing thanks to strategic sectors, such as agro-food or tourism."
