In an effort to strengthen relations with the migrant community living in Merida, as well as with Meridanos living abroad, two outstanding events were held: the celebration of the first anniversary of the Municipal Office of Attention to Migrants and the Second Multicultural Gastronomic Encounter.

Migrants from nine countries and 12 Mexican states participated.

The municipal trustee, Diana Canto Moreno, together with the Secretary of Citizen Participation, Julio Sauma Castillo, inaugurated the Second Multicultural Gastronomic Encounter in Las Americas Park, where more than 4,500 visitors had the opportunity to taste a wide variety of typical dishes from Mexico and other countries.

This event was a success and counted with the participation of immigrants from nine countries and 12 Mexican states.

Immigrants in Mérida showcased their regional gastronomy in the program which included activities such as bicycle rides, shows, dances, and music, which celebrated cultural diversity and the richness of international food.

On the other hand, a virtual meeting was held with Meridanos living abroad, in which Canto Moreno thanked the participants for their interest in collaborating with the municipal government to improve the living conditions and human rights of migrants.

Since its creation a year ago, the Municipal Office of Attention to Migrants has made significant progress in social, economic, and legal areas.

During the virtual meeting, the Mayor’s interest in having Meridanos abroad become promoters of Yucatan’s culture, education, security, and lifestyle was highlighted.

It was recognized that their participation contributes to the economic growth and development of the municipality.

Ashanti Caballero de Kohli, a resident of Switzerland, praised the openness of the city council and expressed her satisfaction with the advances in legal certainty and digitalization of procedures, which has boosted real estate investment projects in Mérida.

Mariana Bernés, who lives in Colombia, pledged to improve communication and promotion of Mérida in cultural, commercial, tourism, and service areas in order to strengthen the Yucatecan capital’s position internationally.
