The National Chamber of Commerce, Services and Tourism of Mérida (Canacome) warned that if the shortage of fuel in several states of the country is not solved, there could be a lack of certain basic products that are basically transported from Central Mexico to the Yucatan.
The president of the Canacome, Michel Salum Francis, ruled out that for the moment there is a shortage of gasoline in the state: “Unlike other areas of the country, fuel arrives to Yucatan from Veracruz by sea, which guarantees that there will be no fuel shortage in our state”, Salum declared.
The business leader considered that the situation could affect the state of Yucatan in a different way, because if the lack of fuel in other states is not resolved, there could be a shortage of certain products which are brought by land from other Central Mexico states, to supply the local businesses.
Salum Francis stressed that those basic products could start to be missed on shelves of supermarkets, groceries and other smaller convenience stores, if this situation continues in the country.
He said that they trust that the situation will be resolved soon, because it must be a priority for the federal government. Otherwise it will be a serious blow to the local business sector.
“We trust that as the new federal government takes control of the fuel distribution routes, the supply will be normalized, so as not to affect the economy of the Southeast Mexico states,” he said.
