As an active partner, the Revi Group participated in the X Annual Meeting of the Economic Forum of Galicia, held on the Island of La Toja (O Grove) on the 9th and 10th of May.
The Foro Económico de Galicia is a platform for the transfer of knowledge in economic matters from Galician companies and universities towards society and public decision spaces. It is also defined as a civil society tool that aims to contribute to a better knowledge of the challenges, opportunities and threats on the Galician productive structure, its companies, and its public sector.
In this edition, the scenarios of the Galician economy against Brexit were addressed; the fare policy on the road network in Spain and Galicia; and "Galicia 2040".
In general terms, the conclusions of the meeting reflected that Galicia is not among the European regions most conditioned by Brexit and Spain is not among the most affected states either, according to the debate in line with the report previously presented by Fernando González Laxe. A survey reflects in this sense that the population is more concerned than the affected sectors themselves. Three things are of particular concern: export prices, the role of young people and general derivatives for foreign trade.
In the debate also surfaced the idea that the Brexit is a crisis of representative democracy and there was a coincidence that the Brexit without agreement can result in chaos. At the same time, Brexit should always be understood as an opportunity.
