The capital’s government will seek to bring producers and artisans from Mexico City to Yucatán so that they can exhibit what they make in that part of the country.
During the presentation of “Yucatán Expone”, an event being held in the Zócalo, the head of government Claudia Sheinbaum expressed her desire to bring exhibitors from the capital to Merida.
“I’m going to ask Nathalie (Desplas) here to reach an agreement with the secretary of economic development of Yucatán so that we can, it’s a good idea, be able to have an exhibition of the city there in Mérida,” she commented.
In this regard, the governor of Yucatán, Mauricio Vila, offered the space free of charge for exhibitors from Mexico City, in order to thank the facilities granted to him for the organization of “Yucatán Expone”.
“Yes, of course we would be more than happy to return the favor. We have an exhibition center which is the Yucatan XXI century that had 10 thousand square meters and we have just expanded it to 23 thousand square meters, this allowed us to host the tourism tianguis in Yucatan, the truth is that because of the heat it is important that it be indoors and I think it would be the ideal place and we would be delighted, just as we have been favored here in Mexico City, we would be in the best disposition to make it available at no cost so that costs can be lowered and a greater number of producers and artisans can be brought from Mexico City,” he said.
“Yucatán Expone” will remain in Mexico City’s Zócalo from this Friday until Sunday, May 21, from 10:00 to 21:00 hours, with 150 stands offering a variety of products made in the state.
