The Government of Isabel Daz Ayuso considers it unfair to obtain less money after trying to contain the recession
The decision of the Government of Daz Ayuso to avoid strict confinements of the hotel industry and commerce relegates you in the distribution of direct aid in the Ministry of Finance, having suffered a serious recession, but somewhat less acute than in other communities.
The María Jess Montero Department calculates the bulk of the distribution, two-thirds, based on the indicator of income of each autonomous community, which measures the decline in GDP in 2020, moderate as a function of the relative prosperity of each of them.
