As a precedent of this meeting, ARVAY’s board held in recent months a productive working meeting in the same sense with the Consul General of Mexico in Los Angeles, Marcela Celorio.
Regarding the scope of this international cooperation agreement, the president of ARVAY, Jordy Abraham stated: “With this type of alliances, we seek to transcend borders, taking Valladolid to new horizons.

The commitment is to maintain fluid communication and to carry out specific actions that will bring us closer to the objective of positioning Valladolid”.
