Seville, (EFE) gives its Statute of Autonomy.
In his speech at the award ceremony of the Medals and titles of Favorite Sons on the occasion of Andalusia Day, which recalls the referendum by which in 1980 the community agreed to full autonomy, Moreno has claimed that “it is not It is fair that autonomy be attacked while other territories are always presented with a red carpet”.
He has said that the Junta “acts with all the instruments and powers” it has, which is why Moreno defends the validity of the Andalusian Statute.
“We do not give up any of the possibilities that our Statute of Autonomy gives us and we are determined to defend an Andalusia with the capacity to choose its future within the framework of the Spanish Constitution”, he pointed out.
Moreno has defended the right of Andalusia to “seek the best tools for the well-being and progress of Andalusia, lowering taxes, facilitating the creation of companies, attracting investment, strengthening the economic sectors and adapting the productive fabric to the economy of the future”.
Wide and modern Andalusia brand
He has referred to the political concept of “andalucismo” to point out that it is “to build a better Andalusia and move together towards the future with determination and pride”.
He has assessed that Andalusia has “the confidence, stability and security that job creation requires” and has ensured that it is seen as “an attractive and reliable community” and that the “Andalusia brand” is “every day broader, more modern and more attractive”.
Moreno has also referred to public services and has said that Andalusian healthcare “is increasingly modern and a benchmark for research and the most advanced treatments”, although he has admitted that one should not “lose face to problems, that there are.”
He has insisted that they work every day “to improve and consolidate public services, with the certainty that they are an essential and inalienable part of the society we want to be”, he said.
On the other hand, he has appealed to the “useful policy of seeking solutions and improving every day” and has said: “Criticism makes us all better, but in the face of exaggeration that leads nowhere, I advocate responsibility, moderation and the respect”.
For Moreno, Andalusia “does not become strong in dogmas, but in the freedom” that emanates from its statute.
Lola Flores and David Bisbal
The President of the Board, during his speech at the Teatro de la Maestranza, mentioned all those who have received the Medals of Andalusia and the title of Favorite Sons, including Lola Flores, posthumously, of whom he said: “He encouraged us to value and love ourselves. I sincerely believe that she would be satisfied to see that today Andalusia, that Andalusia that, according to her, was a different planet, is more and more confident and proud of itself”.
The Almeria singer David Bisbal, the other Favorite Son, has highlighted his talent and that he transmits “his passion for Andalusia and his beloved Almería”.
He has also had a memory for the Ukrainian people, for giving an “example of dignity and resistance in defense of freedom and democracy” and for the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.
After appealing for “unity, collective effort, a generous and useful alliance of all Andalusians”, the president of the Junta quoted a few words from Blas Infante, considered the father of the Andalusian homeland: “Andalusians of all fields and parties, come to this work. The men of the most opposite ideas, united by the ideal of a great Andalusia”. EFE
