As part of the vision to keep Mérida as the best city in the country to live and invest, Mayor-elect Renán Barrera offered to promote and consolidate the regulatory improvement policies, which have placed the state capital in first place at national and Latin American level.
Upon receiving officials from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (Organización Económico de Cooperación y Desarrollo: OECD), Barrera Concha stressed its commitment to promote the integral development of the city, encouraging investments through agile procedures that save entrepreneurs’ time and money.
The elected municipal president met with Dr. Manuel Gerardo Flores Romero, Senior Economist of the Regulatory Policy Division of the OECD; Adriana García Campos and Erik Pérez Pérez, policy analyst and economist of the OECD, respectively.
“We congratulate the local authorities, for their commitment to simplify all municipal online procedures, related to the opening of companies, construction of buildings”, etc., Flores Romero said.
“Procedures for construction and business operation can be completed without stepping into an office, only through an advanced electronic signature, with expert appraisals that can be consulted in the mobile app developed by the municipality,” explained Flores Romero.
In this regard, he stressed the importance of having a first approach with the elected mayor, Barrera Concha, with the purpose of exchanging ideas, and talk about the training that will be provided to the officials, in terms of technological changes and administrative simplification.
The OECD is an international organization, which last Tuesday July 31, recognized the City of Mérida as the first Mexican and Latin American municipality to comply one hundred percent with the recommendations on policy of regulatory improvement.
The regulation of procedures by municipal governments seeks to move towards innovative practices applied at the municipal level in countries such as Australia, Canada, Spain, in order to eliminate corruption, make the procedures simple, fast, efficient and 100% online.
At the meeting, the elected mayor, was accompanied by Mr. Alejandro Ruz Castro, elected councilor and the LAE Mario Martínez Laviada.
