Canarian President promotes maritime connection

The president of the Canary Islands admitted yesterday afternoon that the Canarian government is interested in a maritime connection, for goods and passengers, between Madeira and the Canaries.

Speaking to journalists, on the sidelines of the inauguration of the Barceló Funchal Oldtown Hotel, Fernando Clavijo, considered this an important investment for expanding the market.

The problem at the moment, he said, is at the level of the company Naviera Armas, which, after the death of the owner, is struggling with ownership issues.

Depending on the deal that will be carried out, in relation to the shipping company, “good news” is expected for 2024.

He praised the air connection and also mentioned the importance of the cruise market for both regions.

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.
