In 2021, while the country presented an economic growth of 5.9%, in Yucatán we grew by 8.1%, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi); in addition to the fact that we have recovered the jobs lost during the pandemic, since with data from September, 24 thousand more jobs have been generated than the 25 thousand we lost during the pandemic, totaling 49 thousand according to the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS).

In addition to the above, he said that in the same month of September a new historical maximum of workers registered with the IMSS was achieved, with 410,282 people insured; in the foreign direct investment we grew by 1,331.7%, concerning the first quarter, and 442% compared to the first semester of 2021, according to the Economy’s Ministry.

Continuing to boost the state’s competitiveness, he indicated that, following negotiations with the Federation, two Combined Cycle power plants of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) are being built in Mérida and Valladolid, while an investment of more than four and a half billion dollars was announced to bring in up to 450 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, ensuring the operation of Yucatán’s industry.

Other projects that are being promoted to transform Yucatán, he recalled, are the expansion of the Puerto de Altura de Progreso, the construction of stations for the Tren Maya in the state, the Gran Parque La Plancha, which will become a natural park for the Yucatecan capital, as well as a new local attraction.

“This is what we are doing in Yucatán. Anyone who wants to invest in our state should approach us because as a government we are willing to listen to them and work together, because this is how we like to team up and this is how we will continue to do it,” he concluded.
