Quintana Roo Governor Roberto Borge Angulo and National Institute of Women (Inmujeres) President Lorena Cruz Sánchez signed a cooperation agreement with the aim of focusing and improving national policy on equality.
The state government and the federal agency will work together on this matter.
During the event held at the Chetumal International Convention Center, the governor said the initiative is backed by President Enrique Peña Nieto, who is prioritizing the institutionalization of gender perspectives. Borge Angulo was accompanied by Quintana Roo Family Development Agency (DIF) President Mariana Zorrilla de Borge.
“Today we cannot have democracy without equality of responsibility and rights. The future of Quintana Roo is dependent on its women, and this deal further strengthens the determination of the people from this state to support national public policy of President Enrique Peña Nieto,” the governor said.
Borge Angulo noted that Quintana Roo is one of the few states to formally sign such a deal.
“It is now the responsibility of all of us to carry out the directives of this deal in order to construct a modern nation with opportunities for development, equality and the protection of women. Quintana Roo will loyally follow the program set out by the federal government. This brave program will support women and will make Mexico a more equal society,” the Governor added.
Cruz Sánchez congratulated Borge Angulo, thanking him for his invaluable support in the effort to protect women’s rights. She said the agreement will contribute to the collective effort to improve equality, but above all will help to confront and remove the various threats of violence faced by women in Quintana Roo.
“Both the local and federal governments are convinced that with determination and hard work we can ensure that women’s rights, in all aspects, are respected,” said the Inmujeres president.
Quintana Roo Institute of Women (IQM) head Blanca Pérez Alonso underlined that the deal reflects the federal government’s public policy and shows the importance of gender equality.
Pérez Alonso stated that at the start of his administration, Borge Angulo established the necessary conditions to implement public policy on gender equality.
