Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal highlighted the benefits of the state for attracting investment, accompanied by the president of this organization, José Domingo Figueroa Palacios.

What is happening in Yucatan is that we are clear about how far and where we want to go, so we are working together, always favoring dialogue and resolving our differences, said Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal to members of the National Board of Directors of the Mexican Institute of Finance Executives (IMEF).

At the head of the meeting together with the president of that organization, José Domingo Figueroa Palacios, the Governor affirmed that the state and the country need more joint efforts and less confrontation, which has led to very important things happening, resulting in historic indicators on employment, economic growth, tourism and security.

The head of IMEF highlighted the development that the territory presents, as a result of its rule of law and security, which give a lot of confidence to come and invest. “I am sure that with the work led by Vila Dosal, the future of Yucatan is very promising,” he added.

For his part, the local leader of the Institute, Juan Manuel Brito Segura, highlighted the vision that has characterized Vila Dosal’s administration, “he is a leader more than a Ruler, he knows where he wants to take the state and is laying the foundations for a better and more promising future for new generations.”

“We are proud of the government we have because Mauricio Vila has led a hard work to attract investment, always taking advantage of the circumstances and, therefore, I am sure that our state is different since his administration,” he said.

Before the president of the local Business Coordinating Council (CCE), Beatriz Eugenia Gómory Correa, the Governor indicated that in view of the inequality that exists in Mexico, it is time to take advantage of current opportunities, such as promoting nearshoring in the north and generating conditions so that the rest of the Republic can take advantage of it.

Likewise, he mentioned having more and better infrastructure in the southeast; strengthening state police forces; detonating tourism to create formal jobs; advancing as a team between government orders, private initiative and civil society, and favoring dialogue over confrontation.

Regarding the outlook for the state, he stated that 2021 was the year in which most formal jobs were generated in the state, with 28,890, and February 2023 was the month with the highest salary since records have been kept, according to the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) in both cases.

As a result of the international promotion of the territory, Foreign Direct Investment 2022 reached a flow of 535.9 million dollars, a record figure in local history, according to data from the Ministry of Economy (SE), and more than 260 projects are being received, for more than 114 billion pesos, from world-class firms such as Tesla, Amazon, Airbus, Accenture, Leoni and Preh.

Regarding tourism, he stated that Merida’s airport is the sixth largest in the country and the state has excellent connectivity through this route, with 20 daily cargo flights to various points in Mexico, Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.

Also, 9 global and direct flights to Havana, Camagüey, Miami, Houston, Oakland, Dallas, Toronto, Guatemala and Flores, and 11 domestic flights to Mexico City, León, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Veracruz, Villahermosa, Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Tijuana, Oaxaca, Toluca and Querétaro.

He commented that, in terms of security, in 2022, a record low crime rate was reached, as there were only 1.8 cases per 1,000 inhabitants, 9 times less than the national average, with a 51% reduction compared to the previous year, according to the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP).

Likewise, they have the possibility of obtaining a loan from the Instituto del Fondo Nacional de Vivienda de los Trabajadores (INFONAVIT); they are granted scholarships for their children’s university, 100% of registration and tuition, with a bimonthly support of 1,600 pesos, and the Héroes Ciudadanos Circuit and Card were made available, with discounts in more than 1,000 companies.

Other actions are the strategic projects that are being developed together with the Federation, such as the expansion of the Puerto de Altura de Progreso, which will allow the arrival of cruise ships or larger vessels, and the naval giant Fincantieri, which will create and operate the largest shipyard in America.

He also mentioned the Libramiento of this coastal municipality, the 2 new combined cycle power plants, the Tren Maya and the strengthening of the natural gas pipeline, and affirmed that the state has the infrastructure to receive important national and international meetings.

Finally, Vila Dosal explained the transformation of the public transportation system in Yucatan and, as an example, highlighted that the Ie-Tram, innovative public transportation, will be the only one in Latin America 100% electric and will offer an efficient, modern and safe mobility option.
