The municipality of Alcúdia is to have the first professional nautical training centre, a project that will be financed by the sustainable tourism tax, with a bi-annual investment of €2.5m and a capacity for 200 students per year.
The project is the result of the collaboration of the Government Ministers of Tourism, of Education, of Workers and the municipality of Alcúdia. All agreed to emphasize the importance of strengthening vocational training and added that the nautical sector has a demand for workers. The vice president and minister for Tourism, Biel Barceló stressed that the project “fits within the objectives of the eco-tax.”
For his part, Mayor Mir said that the training of young people “is a constant concern” of the City Council and described as “right” to create a nautical training centre in Port d’Alcúdia. He also took the opportunity to announce that he will not give up on the hotel school.
