With them, he continued, the “Andalusian model” has been built. “We have gone through very difficult times and many companies have been affected by the pandemic, but Andalusia works is open and is standing out. We have the capacity, the potential and the determination of the Government to become the economic locomotive of Spain in the medium term”.
