Canary government puts its faith in Fuerteventura 

The Government of the Canary Islands is allocating more than seven million euros towards improving the tourist infrastructures of Fuerteventura in 2018.

One of the most important actions is that of the Mirador de los Canarios, whose works will be tendered by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sports once the environmental authorisation is received. The project will cost 2,864,925 euros.

In addition, the regional government financed with 2,871,145 euros the preparation of the maritime avenue of Puerto del Rosario, which includes the con-struction of a pedestrian walkway of six metres wide. The space that will be generated between the new promenade and the detour of the road will be used to create a green area.

The municipality of Tuineje is earmarked 900,000 euros, 450,000 for the seafront of Giniginámar and another 450,000 euros whose purpose is still to be defined. Likewise, the Canary Islands Gover-nment finances with 385,000 euros the extension of the Juan Évora Suárez ravine, in Castillo Caleta de Fuste, in Antigua. Finally, the investment in Betancuria amounts to 200,000 euros for signage, pavement and street furniture, in addition to the 100,000 euros that were already allocated for this purpose in 2017.

The Director General of Tourism Infrastructure, Héctor Suárez, stressed the impor-tance of taking forward these works “that make up a quality destination, improving the service offered to those who visit us and the residents, always with the maximum of adapting to the idiosyncrasy of each space and stimulate greater tourist spending that reactivates the local eco-nomy.”
