CANCUN — “Investment is attracted to the state of Quintana Roo, in areas other than tourism, through the “Pro Quintana Roo” platform, which aims at diversifying the economy, in areas such as renewable energies and new technologies, with several projects already underway, that cannot be revealed, for reasons of confidentiality,” declared Carlos Orvañanos Rea, director of the State Institute for Development and Financing (Instituto para el desarrollo y financiamiento del estado: Idefin).
The state official said that there are several ongoing industrial projects that can be realized by the end of this year or the beginning of the next, in addition to the local opening of the Unifin financial unit, which offers more than $2 billion USD to finance and promote economic growth projects, that will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Several important projects are in the pipeline, which have been in the making for a few months now, many of which were already independently given to Pro Quintana Roo,” he explained. “It was a challenge to open the eyes of investors, and create awareness that there are more profitable business alternatives other than tourism for Quintana Roo.”
He indicated that many of these initiatives are in the planning phase, because they are still incipient activities in the state.
“These are not projects that can be made from one day to the next, these are significant investments of new business activities for the state, it’s not like opening a new hotel or motel,” he said.
Finally, Orvañanos Rea reiterated that because there are confidentiality agreements, he cannot give details, but he said that there will be an official announcement in this regard before the end of this year or early next year.
