The project to be built near the entrance to Manuel Crescensio Rejón International Airport will influence the area’s commercial development….

MERIDA — The first thing that visitors will see when arriving in Merida by air will be a new commercial complex that rises near the entrance of the airport, where until a few years ago a local bottling company operated.

The president of the National Chamber of Commerce of Merida (Canacome), Juan José Abraham Dáguer, remarked that the construction of this new commercial complex will provide immediately great benefits for people in the area, such as new jobs and more consumer options.

“We understand that the project that is under construction at the airport will have an impact in the area, but we still do not know for sure what facilities will be in the building,” he said.

He emphasized that both the surrounding colonies, as well the people who work in the area, will be the ones who will get the greatest benefits, like the Wal-Mart store that may be located in the complex.
