The Council of Ministers has continued on Tuesday with the dynamics of recent weeks, marked by the elections next Sunday. First, it has given the green light to the announcements made over the weekend, such as the 38.5 million euros that will be dedicated to mental health, the Parity Law project and a game of 580 million for the improvement of infrastructures and endowments of the centers of Primary Care. In parallel, the economic vice president of the Government Nadia Calviño has announced that she hopes to have the endorsement of Brussels next week to launch the program of 550 million euros in aid for the use of 5G in rural areas.

This was stated by Calviño during the press conference after the Council of Ministers, in which he stated that he hopes to convene the UNICO 5G Active Networks program this June, which is financed with Next Generation European funds. Specifically, the objective of this injection of money is to promote the use by the operators of the necessary infrastructures (active and passive equipment, antenna…) to bring this technology closer to municipalities with less than 10,000 inhabitants and lacking coverage of at least 50 megabits per second (Mbps).

Law of Parity

Regarding the future Parity Law, this has already been sent to the Congress of Deputies, and its objective is to oblige that no sex has a weight of less than 40% in the management of companies, members of the Government, the electoral candidacies and bodies of the Judiciary such as the Constitutional Court. Calviño has stated that its application will be made in different terms: before July 1, 2024 in the case of listed companies and until July 2026 in non-listed companies with more than 250 employees and an annual turnover of 50 million euros. . For their part, public interest entities will have until June 30, 2028.

The also head of Economic Affairs, Nadia Calviño, has highlighted that the sanctioning regime of the future norm “differentiates situations” and, among them, “it is more inflexible in the participation of women in the board of directors with respect to management positions” as well as with the large listed companies compared to the rest. “It is an important step towards effective parity, but without establishing disproportionate demands for large companies or small ones. The sanctioning regime is proportionate and avoids the negative impact. With this rule, Spain is at the forefront in terms of parity and rupture of the glass ceiling”, Calviño pointed out.

Decent job

In parallel, the Ministry of Labor has reported in a press release that the Council of Ministers has also endorsed the plan to promote decent employment drawn up together with the autonomous communities and contemplates, for the first time, a portfolio of common services for workers and that contemplates the reality of SMEs. In addition to taking into account the circumstances of groups such as the disabled, people in situations of social exclusion, people with family responsibilities, victims of terrorism and women victims of gender violence. In total, only in active employment policies, up to 6,388 million euros will be awarded, of which 2,572 million have already been distributed among the autonomous regions. To which another 231.8 million from the Recovery Plan have been added.

It was not the only announcement made today by Calviño that, “in the next few days”, he will launch 18 university-company chairs within what is known as Perte del Chip, to promote talent and academic specialization in the area of ​​semiconductors and which will have an investment of about 80 million for public and private universities. In parallel, “soon” the call for chip missions will be opened, which with 60 million euros in public investment will promote research centers in the development of cutting-edge microelectronic design and alternative architectures.
