The state government, through the agency of investment promotion “ProQuintana Roo”, is currently looking to boost the state’s economy not only related to the hotel industry and restaurant sector, but also in sustainable and ecological technologies.
CANCÚN — In order to attract Canadian capital, ProQuintana Roo CEO Carlos Orvañanos made a working tour in Montreal, Canada; having a meeting with the Formula E board and also with the Mayor of Montreal in order to request the international headquarters of this competition after conducting a feasibility study in Cancún that shows this race and expo could be possibly carried out in 2019.
“We seek that Cancún will host the FIA Formula E Championship (a class of auto racing that uses only electric-powered cars), so that it’s necessary to create a cluster of sustainable development technologies that will supply the hotel and infrastructure industries in the region”, said Orvañanos.
One year after its creation, the agency ProQuintana Roo aims to promote a large number of investments statewide; and the tour made in Canada is catalogued as the first carried out abroad.
“We are changing our international strategy due to the new policies of the United States, therefore, we seek to further strengthen the ties that already exist with Canada as there is a relationship of respect, collaboration and mutual understanding”, Orvañanos noted.
In an interview with NOTIMEX, Carlos Orvañanos explained: “Canada ranks second just below the United States in the number of foreign visitors to Quintana Roo, in addition, Interjet launched new flights from Montreal and Toronto to Cancún.
During the working tour in Montreal, staff members of ProMexico’s office in Quebec and ProQuintana Roo met with representatives of the Ecotech Quebec cluster, which is a promoter of clean technologies.
They pointed out Quintana Roo does not only seek to boost the tourism industry but also the other sectors to become an important destination for investments in innovation projects, renewable energy, ecological real estate development and digital technologies, over all, in areas such as Bacalar, Chetumal and Mahahual.
ProQuintana Roo committee also visited other Canadian companies and organizations such as Velec, which makes electric bicycles usually supplied with a special battery. Then, they met with the Commerce Chamber of Montreal, where Canadian entrepreneurs expressed their interest to promote their products in the Mexican southeast.
