Cancun, Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Mexico’s president Andrés Manuel López Obrador will be heading to the region in coming days to discuss state project plans.
López Obrador made the announcement of his planned visit to discuss projects that include Welfare Programs, the Maya Train, the decentralization of the Ministry of Tourism and the implementation of the Free Zone in Chetumal.
The visit is in part, for the economic detonation of the south of Quintana Roo where members of the business sector are interested in the construction of the section of train that will connect Tulum-Bacalar since it will allow local construction companies to participate in its tender.
Another agenda topic is the Free Zone project where concerns remain since the National Development Plan only includes the North Zone.
President López Obrador will visit three regional municipalities during his short visit. They include Merida on June 22, Tulum at 11:00 a.m. and Playa del Carmen at 4:00 p.m. on June 23 and a morning press conference in Cancun June 24.
It will be his second working project tour of the state.
