The CCMX Business Meeting was a resounding success, holding at least 1,400 meetings between representatives of large purchasing firms and entrepreneurs, micro, small and medium-sized companies in Yucatan.
The event, organized by the Secretariat of Economic Development and Labor (Sefoet) of the State Government, in collaboration with the Competitiveness Center of Mexico (CCMX), took place at the Siglo XXI Convention Center.
From 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., more than 150 companies from Yucatán, from various sectors, such as food and beverages, agribusiness, construction, crafts, textiles, jewelry and manufacturing, had the opportunity to present their products and services to representatives of prominent companies such as Chedraui, Coppel, Grupo Posadas, ADO Mobility, Cemex, Kekén and Bepensa, who traveled specifically for this meeting.
The Secretary of Economic Development and Labor, Ernesto Herrera Novelo, highlighted the importance of collaborative events like this. “This happens when the private initiative, the Government, the Academy, and the entire ecosystem work hand in hand,” he said.
Economic growth of Yucatán
In addition, he highlighted the economic growth of Yucatán, which has gone from 240,000 million pesos to 370,000 million pesos annually under the current administration.
During the event, Yucatán’s outstanding position at the national level in attracting investments was also highlighted, being third place according to studies by the National Council of the Maquiladora and Export Manufacturing Industry (Index).
Businessmen and representatives of business organizations praised the public safety and investment attraction policies that have contributed to the sustained growth of the state.
The CCMX Business Meeting was not only an opportunity to do business but also a testimony of the joint work to promote economic growth and business collaboration in Yucatán.
