“If a company is not healthy, it risks going bankrupt. And without the company, labor income cannot be increased”He pointed to Planas. In fact, the position advocated by CAEB is, in the words of its chairman, “The best social shield that guarantees continuity, stability and growth is employment. In order for employment to occur, a healthy, competitive and highly productive business structure is required.”

Likewise, he also mentioned the influencing factors. “illegal” inflation and the Russian occupation of Ukraine. “All these components have, so far, prevented us from regaining pre-pandemic levels of economic growth,” Planas said.
From his perspective, a positive summer “should not hide the uncertainty in business caused by the slowdown in European economies, inflation and war”. In this context, he reminded that the Bank of Spain reduced the growth forecasts for 2023, which the Government had already lowered, to 1.4 percent.
