Vila Dosal emphasized one of the most important projects that will mark a before and after in Yucatan, such as the construction of the largest shipyard in America, in charge of the Italian company Fincantieri in the Port of Progreso. 

He specified that the alliance with Fincantieri will detonate the naval industry in the country and especially in the South-Southeast, generating economies of scale for the states that make up this important economic zone of the country and creating synergy with the Maya Train and the trans-isthmus corridor.

He recalled that, last October, the Italian company Fincantieri confirmed that for the construction of the first stage of the shipyard it will invest 150 million US dollars, which later increased to 220 million US dollars, which will result in a tremendous boost for the local economic development of the port Progreso, the city of Merida and all of the Yucatan.
