Xàbia is to rejoin the Advisory Board of the Casa Mediterráneo, the public institution whose main goal is to foster mutual knowledge and to bring Spain and the other Mediterranean countries closer together on different areas such as culture, economy, climate change, gender equality or scientific and technological innovation.

The Consortium contacted the town hall in Xàbia to express its interest in recovering one of its original members and demonstrate the new stage that the organization is now experiencing.

Mayor José Chulvi explained that Xàbia will join with conditions different from those of the first stage, especially with regards to the consortium’s commitment to decentralize activities. Xàbia will not make any economic contribution and it would be in the next fiscal year when it will be considered in the municipal budget.

Casa Mediterráneo is made up of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation (MAUEC), the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the Generalitat Valenciana, the Alicante City Council, the Benidorm City Council and the Alicante Provincial Council.

All the members have unanimously supported the return of Xàbia, a founding member in 2009 (the municipality was even officially its sub-headquarters at one time) and which in 2013 chose to leave the institution precisely because all its activity was condensed in the city of Alicante.

Now the town hall in Xàbia is waiting to receive the documentation that reflects the conditions of the agreement to start its internal processing and submit it to a vote of the plenary session.
