The President of the Cabildo de La Gomera, Casimiro Curbelo, says that this fiscal year will be definitive for the island since the Island Council has already marked the lines of action to address and complete all the outstanding works of infrastructure. According to Curbelo the administrative cooperation which has responded to the island's needs is the key to fulfilling the objective outlined by the insular institution.

He points out that among the actions that will be undertaken during 2008 will be the closure of the insular ring road, included in the public road works convention between the Canaries and the State, the by-pass road of Hermigua, new access to La Lomada and remodeling of the TF-713, which leads to the south of La Gomera. Important also will be the channeling of the island's ravines, a process that has already begun and "which will become a reality after the commitment made by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero to the island's demands," he stresses.

In addition, other actions that will be carried out in Gomeran municipalities are the completion of the Sports Pavilion, better known as Audillón, and the Edifice of Multiple Uses, located at San Sebastián de La Gomera, the recovery of architectural heritage, "a process that has been going on for years”, the refurbishment of the pools and coast of Hermigua, and improvement of the network for rainwater disposal.

The president stresses that this year "we are going to implement all the necessary facilities so that the citizens may live better, and we will do so in accordance with moderate growth which respects the environment that we have always defended", which is why the insular corporation encourages conservation policies and environmental protection.
