The Ministry of Finance has announced a distribution of the 7,000 million foreseen among the Autonomous Communities that has generated immediate tension with the Madrid autonomous government. The Department that directs Mara Jess Montero grants Andalusia the largest item in absolute terms, 1,109.2 million, followed by Catalonia, with 993 million. However, the Community of Madrid, with an economic weight similar to that of Catalonia, will receive 30% less, 679 million and is in fifth place in the ranking, which has provoked a quick protest from the Government of Isabel Daz Ayuso. “It is a punishment for political reasons,” said the Minister of Finance, Javier Fernndez-Lasquetty.

“We were unpleasantly surprised to see how Madrid is once again punished by the Government of Pedro Sánchez“, he affirmed shortly after knowing the distribution. Lasquetty has stressed that Madrid is granted 9% of the cake when it represents 14% of the population and 19% of the economy.” In other words, Madrid will receive 101 euros per inhabitant, while 130 euros reach Catalonia and 128 Valencia “, he criticized.” It cannot continue to be tolerated that Snchez punishes in this case the companies, the self-employed and the SMEs in Madrid that are having a bad time for political reasons and electoralists. It is unfair. “The distribution and the protest coincide with the autonomous electoral campaign.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Finance, the distribution criterion has been to prioritize the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands with 2,000 million for both, as planned, but that has distributed the remaining 5,000 million “taking into account the same indicators and with the same weighting that they have in the allocation of the REACT EU fund, only updated. “This distribution of the European React fund was already widely criticized by the autonomous governments of the PP last January for considering that it prevailed over the PSOE.

The distribution has been published this morning in the Official State Gazette (BOE) through a ministerial order that explains the criteria for this distribution and details that it has been made through a first compartment, endowed with 5,000 million euros, in the one in which all the autonomous regions are found except the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands, and a second compartment, with 2,000 million, in which the archipelagos are.

One-ninth of its amount is distributed according to to the youth unemployment indicator (16-25 years) which, analogously to the previous criterion, considers the weighted average between the weight of autonomy in the total of young unemployed registered in January 2020 and its contribution to the increase in youth unemployment registered over the past year in the whole country.
