“Our challenge is to continue to strengthen this sector as the main economic source of our state. We also need to continue efforts on security, human rights, social, education and cultural development throughout of all Quintana Roo.”
He explained that it is essential the state to continue with infrastructure, construction and substantial improvements in the tourism sector as well as fishing, which is one of the fundamental activities in the region.
“The state belongs to a land rich in history, traditions and great natural resources and we need to conserve and preserve our resources for future generations, therefore, legislature must contribute to the strengthening of the state.”
