Regional Government and the Provincial Council inaugurate the Punto Vuela Guadalinfo in Serón

The Serón Centre is one of the pioneers in the province of Almería.

The delegate of the Government of Andalusia in Almeria, Aránzazu Martín, has inaugurated a new Punto Vuela, in the town of Serón. She was accompanied by the mayor of the municipality, Manuel Martínez. In the province of Almeria there are currently 22 Vuela Points completed and it is expected that by the end of the year there will be 61. The approximate investment in the first 61 new Puntos Vuela in Almeria exceeds 3.5 million euros and will be fully completed before the end of 2023.

The Government delegate recalled that “38 municipalities in Almeria will have new Puntos Vuela before the end of the year, for which 2.2 million euros are being invested”.

These are the towns of Abrucena, Alcóntar, Almócita, Arboleas, Armuña de Almanzora, Balanegra, Bédar, Benahadux, Bentarique, Canjáyar, Cantoria, Castro Fibrales, Cuevas de Almanzora, Dalías, Gádor, Gérgal, Fines, Fondón, Huércal de Almería, Íllar, La Mojonera, Laroya, Líjar, Lucainena de las Torres, Lúcar, Mojácar, Ohanes, Oria, Pulpí, Padules, Purchena, Senés, Sorbas, Taberno, Uleila del Campo, Urrácal, Vélez-Blanco and Zurgena.

Martín recalled that “the new Vuela Points represent an essential, public and free support for digital life in the municipalities”.

“Our rural and inland areas deserve a humanised digital life where electronic administration avoids unnecessary travel or waiting, where the different devices allow residents to connect at any time with family and friends and where they can and know how to access resources, services and useful and enriching digital information on a daily basis to help them achieve their personal and professional goals”.

On the other hand, the Government delegate explained that “the Puntos vuela are also resources for economic activity in the towns. Places for companies and digital nomads to telework, hold videoconferences and connect”. “We are making a special effort to invest in digitalisation and these centres are a clear example of this”.

The deputy for European Fundraising, José Juan Martínez, was proud of the Vuela Guadalinfo project as “a valuable example of collaboration between administrations that provides the opportunity for digitalisation and the leap into the network of networks for young and old people in municipalities with less than 20,000 inhabitants. Vuela is the gateway to the world of social networks or to know how to carry out administrative procedures”.

“That is why we always say that these centres become the main ally of Diputación to achieve two of our greatest objectives: to equalise opportunities between Almeria residents, wherever they live, and to fix the population. In short, Vuela connects people,” added the provincial deputy.
