The State Government of Yucatan and local entrepreneurs will open on May 9 the Yucatecan Office of Marketing and Agricultural Business in Miami, Florida, in order to strengthen trade ties and ensure retail spaces for Yucatecan products in the United States market.

Juan Carlos Roldán del Moral, Director of Ornamental Products System Committee of Yucatan, announced that a group of businessmen will make the trip to Miami along with Governor Rolando Zapata Bello to sign the agreement with their American peers.

Other officials such as State Secretary of Economic Development, David Alpizar Carrillo and other businessmen will testify the opening of the office in Florida, facility that will be located at 3722 NW 73 street, 33147, Miami, FL.

This new office, representing Yucatán is the result of an agreement between local producers and the State Government, created to promote the potential and competitive advantages of Yucatecan exports.

Roldán del Moral highlighted the business opportunities that the Eastern United States region represent for entrepreneurs of Yucatan, specifically in agricultural products, particularly fruits, flowers and vegetables, but also crafts and commodities.

“After tourism, the main economic activity in Miami is the ornamental plant Business,” stressed the Yucatecan entrepreneur, interviewed at  “Trade and Investment Opportunities” (meeting with officials from Caribbean nations), which was held on Monday April 28th in the city of Merida.

Roldán del Moral also stated that there are Israeli investors interested in participating in business along with local entrepreneurs, and in June a group of 20 businessmen of Yucatan will attend a training course to place more products and export to the United States.
