Sabón (A Coruña), September 23 (EFE).- The president of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda, announced this Friday a 50% reduction in wealth tax in Galicia, adding 25% to the 25% already applied .

Rueda gave a lecture entitled “Competitiveness and innovation for a Galicia with more certainty” at the Economic Forum of La Voz de Galicia and argued that, in the budgets that will be presented to Parliament on Tuesday, “more than 13,000 million euros ” with specific elements that “will protect people”.

Specifically, he argued that the wealth tax, which must be paid, according to the Galician Tax Agency, by those who have assets or rights valued at more than 2 million euros, will have a bonus that will reach 50%.

Currently, he already has, as he said, a 25% bonus, to which another 25% will be added until he reaches the aforementioned 50%.

“It is much better to lower taxes than to increase them”, he defended himself and affirmed that there are “stimuli” in Galicia to create “a favorable climate” on certain issues, such as the demographic challenge.

When asked if he would reduce fuel taxes, which in Galicia are at the highest level, he said budgets were still being worked out, although he clarified that “the Xunta does not cannot achieve everything or do everything alone”.

During the conference, Rueda considered that the company has a series of “challenges” which “are not easy at all”, with questions such as the price of gas, inflation or the execution of European funds, in which “the only thing that is certain today is doubt, uncertainty”.

“What has been built in recent years, in recent decades, is, to say the least, shaky,” he said.

Faced with this situation, the Galician president sees three options: a “triumphalist position that denies the dangers”, to which he associates, without quoting him, to the Government, another “catastrophist” with a “more formidable speech without providing solutions” and, finally, the “way of the ‘sentidiño'”, which is his own.
