Yucatán reaffirms itself as a prosperous investment territory with the inauguration of the expansion of Hacienda Xcanatún by Angsana, a project of the Banyan Tree Group, by Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal. The expansion adds 54 rooms, reflecting the confidence of the private sector, which continues to bet on Yucatán to develop projects that generate economic growth and quality jobs for the people of Yucatán.
In this context, a new investment was announced for a project that combines residential units with hotel services, offering the option of temporary or permanent occupancy, along with amenities such as a new spa, multipurpose rooms, a renovated gym, and the expansion of the Casa de Piedra restaurant.
Accompanied by the Mayor of Mérida, Renán Barrera Concha, and the Secretary of Tourism Development, Michelle Fridman, Governor Vila Dosal cut the ribbon and toured the new facilities, including the power plant, training room, dining area, suite, water treatment plant, Itzá Suites, and the areas of Bar Lol Há.
Taking the floor, Alejandro Suárez Gerard, Vice President of the Board of Investors Group, reiterated his confidence in Yucatán to continue developing projects that contribute to the economic growth of the state.
“We are willing to continue betting on Yucatán, generating more jobs, and this is possible thanks to the Governor for putting Yucatán in the center of Mexico and the world. Today, the whole world speaks of Yucatán and speaks well of it because the conditions for investment have been created, such as legal certainty, rule of law, but above all, security, because without it, we have nothing,” said Suárez Gerard.
Addressing the audience, Governor Vila Dosal indicated that having globally recognized brands in Yucatán adds to the efforts to showcase the state to the world.
“Today, Yucatán is experiencing a historic moment, as in 2021 it achieved the highest economic growth and the highest number of formal job creations in history. In 2022, we obtained the highest foreign investment, an increase in tourist arrivals, and the safest year in our history with a reduction in crime rates of over 50%, as well as the highest number of formal jobs generated,” emphasized the Governor.
In the presence of Javier Muñoz Pous, Deputy Vice President of Projects and Development at Banyan Tree Group, the Governor stated that important infrastructure projects are underway in Yucatán, such as the construction of 2 thermoelectric power plants, the expansion of the Mayakan natural gas pipeline, and soon the expansion of the Progreso deep-water port to improve logistics and competitiveness.
These projects also include the elevated viaduct in Puerto Progreso, which will allow all cargo transportation to reach the port without passing through the streets, the expansion of the airport to increase its capacity from 2 to 4.7 million passengers, and the Tren Maya, which will boost tourist arrivals to the state.
“We are achieving very important projects such as the Malecón Internacional, the Meteorite Museum in Progreso, and in Mérida, the great park of La Plancha, the tourist and gastronomic corridor, and in July we will begin the renovation of the main square. In this way, we will continue promoting Yucatán at the national and international level for the benefit of the families in the state,” affirmed the Governor.
