Catalan President Pere Aragonès visits Sitges

The president of the Catalan government, Pere Aragonès, visited Sitges on Wednesday, spending time at the Town Council (Casa de la Vila), the second development of the town’s HPO ‘social housing’, as well as the International Mobility Congress being held at the Meliá Hotel.

Aragonès was received in the town hall square by the Sitges mayor, Aurora Carbonell, who introduced the rest of the local councillors present at the event: Luis García, David Martínez, Xavier Salmerón, Carme Almirall, Jaume Monasterio, Guillem Escolà and Carme Gasulla. He then signed the Town Hall’s Book of Honour. The president then went to the mayor’s office, where they discussed various issues of local interest.

Afterwards, the president went to the second social housing development, where local councillors Eduard Terrado and Júlia Vigó were waiting for him. The entourage entered the building to view the already finished flats and whose provisional lists have been published. In the month of November, lots will be drawn from all applicants to decide who will be awarded keys for each home.

Finally, Aragonès went to the Meliá Hotel, to close the International Mobility Congress, which was held on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The congress brought together high-ranking officials from important companies and entities in the sector who shared their experience and vision on how to achieve sustainable, safe and inclusive mobility, and digital transformation. Various talks and round tables were scheduled and the congress had Sweden as its guest country.
