Azorean Government proud of the work developed to support businesspeople, defends Vasco Cordeiro

The Regional Secretary for the Economy is "very pleased" to see that the investment made by the company Bee-Clean in the Azores has met the expectations that have led to its implementation in the archipelago.

Bee-Clean, owned by an Azorean emigrant residing in Canada, José Correia, is currently the largest Canadian company providing cleaning services to companies, having been visited by Vasco Cordeiro on Thursday on the occasion of his visit to Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba.

For the Regional Secretary for the Economy, the implementation of Bee-Clean in the Azores, "creating a business from scratch and not just a branch office," had already "evidenced the confidence in our economy." So, "we were able to become acquainted with their level of satisfaction as this company, originally based on São Miguel, has expanded its services to another five islands, Santa Maria, Terceira, Graciosa, Pico and Faial, demonstrating that "the Azores effectively have the conditions to attract investments, generate wealth and jobs."

In this regard, the government official stressed "the work that has been developed in the Region, whether in attracting investment or in promoting the available benefits for the implementation of these investments, some of which were already made public while others are currently being developed by the Agency for the Promotion of Investment in the Azores."

"The Azores are determined to seize all opportunities that may arise and ensure that all businesspeople interested in investing in the Region can do so without the hindrance of public authorities," said Vasco Cordeiro, adding that "the Government of the Azores has been carrying out an in-depth at the level of incentive schemes by simplifying procedures, speeding up the analysis of projects as well as the payments to these projects."

For Vasco Cordeiro, "the current economic reality demands from the Government the best of its work and effort. This does not mean that the government should lead those investments or say how entrepreneurs must invest in our Region. What we should do is what the Region Government has been doing: provision of legislation supporting investments, incentives that are actual support mechanisms for implementing projects and ensuring security."

The Regional Secretary for the Economy also pointed out "that the Azores now have an incentive scheme that is nationally recognised and that has met the needs of regional businesspeople as evidenced by the reform of this support mechanism, which was unanimously approved by all social partners consulted."

This work, he recalled, was "carried out by the Government of the Azores which initially heard the entities representing regional businesspeople and took their proposals into account when drafting the document that would be later approved at the regional parliament by unanimity. This fact demonstrates that it is possible to work together towards the best interests of the Azores."
