Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal continues his tireless work to attract investments to Yucatán, seeking to generate more jobs and improve opportunities for all Yuatecan families.
In a meeting with the president and CEO of Holley Global, Licheng Wang, and Yibin Ao, respectively, progress was reviewed to establish a 1,000-hectare industrial park in the municipality of Umán.
This project originated during a trade mission to China, where the Governor signed a letter of intent for Holley Global to establish a project in Yucatán, with the potential to attract other companies. This boost would result in the generation of better-paying jobs for Yucatecan workers.
Holley Global, a company with a global presence and diverse activities in industries such as 4.0, pharmaceuticals, automotive, and aeronautics, joins the list of successful FDI projects in Yucatán. During the meeting, the Governor highlighted the opportunities and strengths of Yucatán to attract international investors.
Key projects for economic growth
In the context of a Yucatan in historic economic growth, Vila Dosal highlighted key projects such as the expansion of the Mérida International Airport, the modernization of the Progreso High Port, as well as the Progreso elevated viaduct, and the construction of Combined Cycle Power Plants; not forgetting the growth of the natural gas pipeline.
In addition, initiatives were mentioned such as the Mayan Train, the technological well-being pole, the Great “La Plancha” Park, the IE-Tram (the first electric route in Latin America), and other infrastructures that seek to make Yucatán more competitive.
Vila Dosal stressed that these efforts have positioned Yucatán as a benchmark in nearshoring, ranking third nationally in taking advantage of this phenomenon. The entity is actively promoted internationally, supported by recognition from Deloitte and the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO).
In this administration, Yucatán has attracted investments from various sectors, with more than 350 projects, including textiles, aerospace, tourism, agroindustrial, and automotive, with the arrival of prominent companies such as Accenture, Walmart Group, Tesla, and others.
