The director of the Chair of the New Green Transition, Aurora Pedro, has been interviewed on Radio Televisión Española (RTVE) for the report she recently prepared on the tourist tax.
During the interview, she explained how, with the data available from other European countries that have introduced the tax, such as Amsterdam or Dublin, they detected that the attitude of the population and tourists was one of understanding. The same happens in the only two communities in Spain that have introduced the tax, Catalonia and the Balearic Islands.
According to Pedro, the tax has the function of generating additional financial resources to maintain all kinds of spaces, such as natural or cultural, as well as to improve security or tourism promotion, among others.
