President of Index considers it a priority to increase the competitiveness of the port of Progreso to move greater volumes of cargo abroad.
MÉRIDA, Yucatán, (December 20, 2021).- The Maquiladora and Export Manufacturing Industry (Index) considered that to maintain the dynamism of sales of Yucatecan products abroad it is necessary to increase the competitiveness of the port of Progreso.
The president of the Yucatán Index, Alberto Berrón Bolio, specified that currently, Progreso has seven maritime connectivity routes, which must grow and be strengthened to increase cargo volumes and with it the export of local products.
He pointed out that “Yucatán is a state that has good numbers and we need to continue to maintain growth and reactivation of the economy.
The business leader said that there are new business opportunities, so it is important that economic sectors are prepared to take advantage of them.
“It is important to broaden our horizons to place quality products such as those made by the Yucatecans. Currently, there are new markets and it is important to try to establish links with them so that they know the variety and quality of local manufactures, ” he said.
“The Arab countries have set a program during the 2020-2030 decade to end their economic dependence on oil, for this reason, they are opening their markets and generating more business, more options for their acquisitions, hence our textiles, honey, and agro-industries have great potential since these nations demand many of these products, ” he said.
It should be noted that Yucatán broke a record in its exports in the first quarter of 2021, reaching 260 million US dollars, according to figures from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi).
The shipment of goods to other countries invigorates the entire industrial sector, from manufacturing, through food, beverages, and tobacco, manufacture of inputs and textile products, clothing, tanning, leather products, and leather finishes.
