Mayor Hereu defends Barcelona's model in London

"It is the cohesion, gentlemen." The mayor of Barcelona, Jordi Hereu, adapted the well-known phrase 'It's the economy, stupid ", to synthesize in London how Barcelona is facing the crisis, with the same values of civic participation and complicity between the government and the citizens who have ordered the development of the Capital of Catalonia in the last 30 years. Hereu insisted that the current transformation is more powerful than the changes made because of the 1992 Olympic Games. After all, "the Barcelona of today is closer to 2020 than 1992," recalled the mayor, who boasts a lead Barcelona which turned out to be a city of small things without giving up the big projects of a great city.
Hereu said all this in a lecture at the London School of Echonomics after visiting the works of the 2012 Games, where he recommended to his hosts that the Olympic facilities need to be "linked to the city's main strategy" and to be "very aware of the post-Olympic stage". The mayor also took the opportunity to support the candidature of Madrid for the 2016 Games, and before returning to Barcelona, he inaugurated a new Consolat de Mar in the British capital. It is the fourth of these commercial offices, after the Deputy Mayor, Jordi William Carnes yesterday inaugurated the third in Paris.
