Rolando Zapata Bello,who is the governor of Mexico’s Yucatan region,visited Mexico City recently to discuss the many benefits that come with investing in the area,which is close to Cancun,Playa del Carmen,Tulum and a number of other popular destinations and seaside towns that are located throughout the Riviera Maya.
“The Governor of Yucatan presented the strengths that make the State of Yucatan an attractive opportunity for investment,productivity and competitiveness,” writes the Yucatan Times. “Yucatan implements a comprehensive policy that understands the needs of the economic sectors,linking the productive chains that support and promote entrepreneurship and business incubation.”
Zapata Bello met with members of CONCANACO-SERVYTUR,which includes representatives from 254 chambers that encompass more than 670,000 companies of organized commerce,services and tourism sectors throughout Mexico. At the summit,the Governor also pointed out that the Yucatan region and Riviera Maya real estate remain some of the safest areas in all of Mexico and consistently maintain high security levels,promoting economic growth,cultural preservation,social equality,education and other developmental initiatives.
“The state is recognized as the center of innovation in the region thanks to the excellent work and social relevance of its higher education institutions and research centers,” writes the Yucatan Times. “The commerce and service sectors can take advantage of the geographical location,infrastructure and connectivity that the Yucatan has,as it is called to be the logistics hub of the Southeast of Mexico,because of its proximity to markets such as the Unites States,the Caribbean,Central and South America,as well as European countries.”
The Yucatan region also has rich and very diverse environmental resources,including a number of large protected areas,tourism destinations and untouched jungle landscapes. In addition,the entire region is home to a variety of cultural attractions,including ancient Mayan ruins and traditional dining opportunities. Finally,the planned Trans-Peninsular fast train project is expected to have an even greater impact on connectivity throughout the Yucatan and Riviera Maya regions,providing an additional boost to the area’s already robust economy.
