Quintana Roo Gov. Roberto Borge Angulo and federal Tourism Secretary Enrique de la Madrid Cordero inaugurated the 22nd Annual Conference of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA), which was carried out on the island of Cozumel from Oct. 5 to 9 and attended by representatives of the main cruise lines in the region.
Accompanied by FCCA President Michelle Paige and Cozumel Mayor Fredy Marrufo Martín, the governor welcomed business persons from cruise lines and the tourism industry to the meeting.
Borge, who was acknowledged by the FCCA for his support of the industry, cut the event’s inaugural ribbon and highlighted President Enrique Peña Nieto’s commitment to tourism and the cruise industry, which has grown in the Caribbean and Pacific regions of Mexico.
The governor, who is also the president of the National Governors Conference (Conago), highlighted the growth in the cruise industry in Quintana Roo.
In 2014, there were 1,267 ships and 3.8 million passengers who visited Cozumel and Mahahual. These figures are expected to be even greater in 2015.
“I want to thank you all for believing in Mexico and in our state and making Cozumel one of your favorite destinations,” Borge said.
With the leadership of Peña Nieto and De la Madrid Cordero “we are sending the message to cruise lines that we want to continue growing the tourism sector and the cruise industry in Mexico,” he said.
After welcoming the conference participants, Paige said that the cruise industry in Mexico has grown in recent years thanks to the work of the Quintana Roo governor, who transferred the success of the state’s tourism industry to all of Mexico.
She said that Mexico has a “secret weapon” named Borge who brought tourism back to destinations such as Mazatlán and La Paz, which didn’t receive a single cruise passenger in 2012.
“Mexico will receive 5.7 million cruise tourists in 2015 and 6.1 million in 2016, thanks to the good work that has been done,” she added.
