The president of State Ports visits the Port of Ibiza

Eivissa, 12/05/2017

José Llorca, the president of State Ports, continues his visit of the Pityusic Islands. Llorca, who was accompanied by Joan Gual de Torrella, president of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), got a first-hand insight into the reality of the port area of Ibiza.

The visit took place due to the interest of the president of State Ports to see the issues that affect the ports of General Interest.

During the visit, Llorca stated that the ports are at the service of the economic activity of the territory in which they are located, but that the economic model of the specific territory must be agreed to and determined by local, autonomous and state entities. "Our vocation is not to build a city. It is the local entities that must build it. However, we are committed to opening up the port in favour of such city."

According to Llorca, Ibiza is an investment example that has freed up areas for citizens that were dedicated to loading work. As such, Ibiza is an example of a port opening up in favour of the city, allowing local residents to enjoy the areas that are now free of port activity.

The Port of Ibiza has received over 160 million euros in investment over the last fifteen years. Furthermore, out of the five ports of General Interest managed by the APB, the Port of Ibiza is also the one undergoing the biggest remodelling.

Llorca and Gual's visit comprised a look at the Port of Ibiza's facilities, particularly the Es Martell works and the concession area in which YSM Marinas de España is undertaking works in order to manage the mooring of super yachts in the Marina and Botafoch dock areas.

On finishing their visit, José Llorca and Joan Gual de Torrella were met by Rafael Ruiz, the mayor of Ibiza.
