La Orotava “is still thriving”
La Orotava appears to be holding its own when it comes to business versus the economic recession.
The local council has just carried out a survey and has found that although there were 26 losses during the year, 96 new licences were granted.
“We want to continue to make La Orotava an attractive place for trade and businesses and this study should encourage us to be optimistic and carry out joint actions with different economic sectors,” said economic development councillor, Felipe David Benítez.
The council believes La Orotava is and will continue to be an important shopping and commercial area with a great diversity of services and products.
A study is also being carried out on premises which are either to rent or for sale and a meeting is to be held within the next few months with the business community to provide an update.
