During the year 2016, it has been well established that it is compatible to reduce the expenses of the members of the Corporation in diets and locomotion, and at the same time to achieve greater achievements for our City.

All this for various concepts, such as multiple trips to the different departments and offices in Murcia (Agriculture, Education, Health, Transportation, Treasury or Territorial Direction of Urban Planning), attendance at the Council of Mayors or numerous meetings in both the FMRM and the FEMP of Madrid.
On the other hand, expenses have also been paid by attendance at important fairs such as Fitur or Fruit Attraction, or even "Good Government" Days of participation, courses or meetings of Educating Cities.
Councilor for Finance, Antonio Martínez-Real, stated that "during the year 2016 we have been able to attract significant private capital investments for our City, such as the installation of the Vidal or GS Spain merchants, and significant grants and access To funds from other Administrations, highlighting the achievement of 5 million Euros for investments within the EDUSI strategy, or other important achievements such as occupy the first place in transparency of the Region of Murcia or be included within the so-called Educating Cities, to cite And therefore, contrary to what the PP was doing, this government has no problem in facilitating the expenses of these diets, as we did with respect to 2015. "
Finally, the mayor concluded by recalling "that we are still waiting for the PP to make public the amount of his expenses in diets and locomotion in the last twelve years in which they were governing, and in what concepts were spent, since it is curious that councilors PP ask for expenses in diets or locomotion but nevertheless continue to hide theirs.
