More than 300 thousand people attended the trade show, and is expected that the economic impact will be more than 20 million pesos….
MERIDA — The Expo Comercio trade event held recently in Merida is expected to generate sales with tot impact of more than 20 million pesos. Yucatecan entrepreneurs are ready to ‘invade’ the markets in northern Mexico with their products, since they received proposals from at least eight states to sell honey, textiles, footwear, banana leaves and other products.
Juan Jose Abraham Daguer, president of the National Chamber of Commerce, Services and Tourism of Merida (Canacome), emphasized that the Expo has become a commercial reference point not only in the southeast of the country, as it has attracted the attention of merchants from central and northern Mexico as well as from Houston, Texas and a delegation from Belize.
In an interview with La Verdad newspaper, Abraham Daguer said that in this edition the Expo Comercio received interesting offers from several states of the Republic, including Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Querétaro, Tabasco, Quintana Roo and even Chiapas. “As far as foreigners were concerned, we had the visit of delegations from Houston, Dallas and Belize, where we have very solid commercial relations,” he said.
Also he commented that this year there was attendance of more than 300 thousand people, and statistically, 82% of the people who attend acquire some product or service, the remaining 18% were looking for business options and that is where the distributors are concentrated.
Abraham Daguer also talked about the new invoicing issue. “As a business chamber we have to comply with the law, but we are aware that the federal government has made more complicated the tax payment, since electronic invoicing 3.3 is very complicated.” And he thinks that many of the small entrepreneurs will have difficulty to accomplish with this new requirement.
