We request the extend of the deadline for the submission of the files for springs recognition, setting the final submission date on the 31st of December 2016, so that the 32 files that are now compiled can be successfully completed.

In the above 25 files, another 7 natural resources must be added that are under the jurisdiction of Public Properties Company.

- The reestablishing of the Committee for the Protection of Curative Natural Resources of the Ministry of Tourism.

The reestablishing of the committee must have, this time, the right foundations and avoid the mistakes of the past.

There were 13 files of Natural Resources that were submitted in the Committee for the Protection of Curative Natural Resources:
