“It is not a secret that, every time, the budget of governments is less and we have to see how we can support citizens, above all, take advantage of synergies with private initiative,” he emphasized.

The head of Sefoet reiterated the importance of being open to the private initiative being able to continue investing in Yucatán and working together with the State Government, to generate the jobs that are needed, as in the case of the Stadium, where four thousand job vacancies will be created during its construction and a thousand when it is already in operation.

Herrera Novelo recalled that before determining the final space for the ESY building, five locations were reviewed, in which the corresponding market studies were carried out, however, investors chose Yucatán because it is a place that offers companies legal certainty and the security of recovering their investments.
