If anyone still doubts, today, on the eve of October 9, I would like to remind those who do not know or just do not want to see it, that Orihuela is part of the Valencian Community. And I say Comunitat Valenciana and also Comunidad Valenciana, Orihuela and also Oriola, because there are two official languages in our region and in Orihuela and in the Chamber of Commerce of Orihuela we have this in mind. They are two languages and each one of us has the right to express oneself in the one that he considers most appropriate, in the one that is easier or simply, in which he knows how to do it better.
This month of October is also important for the team that I am honored to preside over, because it will be two years since we took over the institution, and I think – for the moment nobody has told me otherwise – that we have taken it for the good path. We have fulfilled the objectives that any Chamber of Commerce has as a public law corporation, and we have added our own goals that are none other than to achieve better conditions for our territory, for the municipality of Orihuela and, by extension, for the Vega Baja.
We have History, we were the second city of the Kingdom of Valencia at the time of the conquests that we now commemorate, and from Cámara Orihuela we want to recover that capital for the Vega Baja and that importance with respect to Valencia. Because yes, Orihuela is also Comunitat Valenciana.
Just a few days ago we presented our considerations to the Uneix Plan of the Valencian government, the document where the main lines of action are established to get our territory back, that of all Valencian and Valencian from Vinaròs to Pilar de la Horadada. But 2030 is too far away and in Orihuela we need to speed up the procedures, because we have been trying for many years to be heard without our voice reaching beyond the left margin of the Segura.
I have the firm conviction, and I hope not to be disappointed, that we have managed to cross that frontier and since August we have been heard by the heads of all the political parties represented in Las Cortes Valencianas. They have come to our house and taken note of our demands, that of our businessmen and merchants and we have the hope and the certainty that each and every one of them will work to make it a reality as soon as possible.
We do not ask for anything new, but nothing old either, because NOTHING has been done with respect to projects that have been written and talked about a lot, without more. We ask for what we consider that, for justice, it is not a major investment, but the same as that of other regions, because according to the data we have, the per capita investment in Vega Baja during the last years has been 46.3 euros, when the average of the Valencian Community is of 102 euros per inhabitant. We consider it fair to have a decent highway that links the interior of the region with the coast, the CV-95; some schools and some hospitals with all the necessary services; some connections that allow our companies to grow, and others to settle in a territory that enjoys some of the best climates of the entire Mediterranean arch.
Because we want to work and give work to people who live in our municipality, and why not, if it can be, also to those around. We are on track to achieve this, and we have the support of social and business groups with which we are already working. We do not pretend to put ourselves at the head of anything, nor remove protagonism from anyone, but we will continue taking the steps to be known and recognized not for what we ask, but for what we get together with each of those who want to join in this endeavor.
In advance: Happy October 9 to all Valencian and Valencian.
