Chetumal, Q.R. — In order to generate the preferred conditions to attract investments, Governor Carlos Joaquín announced the construction of a new electric plant to meet the demand for electrical service. In a press release, the governor explained that “two power generating turbines were going to be installed in Yucatan, but we managed, with the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), to have one installed in Yucatan and one in Quintana Roo.”
Carlos Joaquín pointed out that in order to diversify the economy of Quintana Roo, it is necessary to generate and create the right conditions for the state to be more competitive in attracting investments.
“We must generate conditions of labor and infrastructure, conditions of attraction of investment that make us competitive with other states of the country,” he said.
The announcement came not long after the recent announcement of the construction of the Cuxtal II gas pipeline, which will connect Quintana Roo with the National Gas Pipeline System and have a capacity of up to 240 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.
Joaquin added that both projects are anticipated to generate investments in the south of the state.
