With the epidemiological situation continuing to improve and the vaccination programme gathering pace, the regional government has started looking at the de-escalation process, especially for the hospitality and leisure sector which has been largely closed for business since the beginning of the year.

The current restrictions in place across the Comunidad Valenciana are due to come to an end at midnight on Monday 1st March and the objective of the regional government has been to analyze the situation to determine the measures necessary to start the de-escalation process as safely as possible. And this includes the re-opening of the hospitality sector throughout the region, specifically those with outdoor spaces.

The meeting was attended by the Regional Secretary for Tourism, Francesc Colomer; the president of the Business Confederation of the Valencian Community (CEV), Salvador Navarro; the president of the Business Confederation of Hospitality and Tourism of the Valencian Community (COHOSTUR), Manuel Espinar; the president of the Federation of Leisure, Tourism and Gaming of the Valencian Community (FOTUR), Víctor Pérez; and the president of the Castellón Hotel Association (ASHOCAS), Álvaro Amores.

During the meeting, it was agreed to come together again on March 9th when the effects of the new de-escalation measures will be assessed.
