Yucatan Governor Rolando Zapata Bello will present to the State Congress before the end of the year the project to create a trust to administer the new ICC….
MERIDA — Saúl Ancona, head of the Tourism Development Secretariat (Sefotur), confirmed that Yucatan governor Rolando Zapata Bello will ask the State Congress for the creation of a new organization to manage the whole International Convention Center, to keep it free of any political interest. The name suggested for this organization is “Yucatan Trust for the Development of Meetings Tourism” (Fideture).
The head of Sefotur acknowledged that it is a commitment of Yucatan’s Governor with the private sector to create an adequate system that grants certainty in the management of the International Conventiion Center, Powered by Samsung (ICC) and meeting tourism. Therefore, he said, its creation is an exercise in governance in which the director of the trust will respond to a technical committee integrated by private and public representatives.
The director of this organization will have goals to meet every four months, in terms of economic projection, profits generation, number of events that take place and the spill they leave in Yucatan. Those indicators will allow the directive board to decide if it is necessary to change the leader of the trust, he said.
He affirmed that the trust director will not be related with the secretary of Tourist Promotion, because the businessmen demand that “he shouldn’t have a political profile; the priority is that he be capable of negotiating and understanding that he has two main responsibilities: the first one is to promote the State and the second one is to make profitable the ICC.
All the requirements previously explained are also for the future workers of the organism; they can’t be learning along the way, as they must be people capable of carrying out analyses and passing examinations of knowledge, aptitudes and attitudes.
The director’s profile must be a person capable of rendering accounts, with financial, commercial and lobbying knowledge, as well as tourism, but who has a broad vision.
