“Despite the partial closures that have been generated on the border of Mexico with the United States, Yucatecan exports have not been affected and in fact, there has been a growth in the shipment of goods abroad”, said Alberto Berrón Bolio, president of the Export Industry of Yucatan (Index-Yucatán).
“During the first quarter of 2019, compared to the same period of the previous year, local exports have grown by at least 6%, which means that the export manufacturing sector of the state continues to consolidate,” said the Yucatecan businessman.
Barrón Bolio said that the dynamism and growth of the Yucatan export manufacturing industry continues, which will be reflected in significant economic growth and job creation by the end of the current year.
He pointed out that the fact that Yucatán has a multimodal logistics platform has been of great benefit to the state, since it allows the shipment of merchandise and products through several communication channels (air, sea and land).
“The partial closure in 8 of the 20 border crossings has not been an impediment for Yucatecan exports, because while a representative percentage is sent to the United States by air from Mérida, another important percentage is shipped through the Port of Progreso. In the case of exports by land, products are sent to the to the USA, through California or Texas using US Customs offices that have not suffered delays or partial closures, “said Barrón Bolio.
“This allows us to demonstrate that in Yucatan we have logistic strength, which undoubtedly is also attractive for national and intenational investors who are searching for new markets for the production of their merchandise,” said the president of Index-Yucatán.
Finally, the executive stressed that coordinated work will be maintained with authorities at all levels of government so that the local export manufacturing sector maintains its growth rate.
