We offer our healthiest congratulations to our client, Dña. Alejandra Licintuña, CEO of the Centro Medico Hyperbarico who has been accepted as a member of the Rotary Club of Estepona on the 14th July 2016. She is seen above proudly holding her membership folder together with the Rotary Club President of Andalucia, the new and previous president of the Estepona Club and the Clubs’s Secretary.
I am delighted to learn that National Police officers in Valencia have made a huge seizure of counterfeit goods smuggled into the country from China.
One of the most notorious international counterfeiters of high street clothing brands has also been apprehended in Benahavis by the Guardia Civil. Similar events have been taking place in Marbella and Puerto Banus.
These “Looky, Looky” people selling fakes & copies of known brands cost millions to companies that spend fortunes promoting their branded products, what is more damaging is that they are robbing trade from
local busnesses who pay rent, taxes and high prices for their products.
Still worse they are a nuisance when approaching people eating at restaurants or just enjoying Andalucia. This is not part of the Andalucia ambiance and it is not doing much good to tourism. Hopefully something
more positive will be done in other areas of the Costa especially in Manilva where there seems to be an excessive number of such peddlers.
