Group meets to improve image of Puerto Banus

Puerto Banus

MARBELLA’S council has put together a commission to improve the safety and cleanliness of one of the Costa del Sol’s most glamorous destinations, Puerto Banus.

The group, made up of council representatives, port workers and members of the Association of Entrepreneurs and Traders, will consider ways to make the area more attractive to businesses in a series of monthly or bi-monthly meetings.

Councillor for Commerce, Jose Eduardo Diaz explained, “for the council team in Marbella it is a priority to revitalise Puerto Banus and immediately tackle the problems that entrepreneurs are concerned about, especially in terms of safety, cleanliness and aesthetics.”

Cristobal Garre, a representative of Nueva Andalucia, said “the current situation is having a negative impact on sales, especially over the last year, and there are ten firms that are considering leaving Puerto Banus, so we have to respond urgently.”

AcoBanus president, Jamal Satli, said he was pleased with the creation of the commission, explaining, “it is the first time in two years that municipal representatives have shown an interest in our demands.”  He added he hoped the initiative would “create synergies between all parties and boost the recovery of Puerto Banus.”
