Governor says Cancun set global example in recent hosting of WTTC event

Cancun, Q.R. — Quintana Roo governor Carlos Joaquín González says that Cancun’s recent hosting of the World Travel summit set an example, showing the world that such events can successfully be held.

During an interview with Radio Fórmula, the Quintana Roo governor said that leaders of the sector were impressed by the example that Cancun gave, that events such as the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) summit, can be held, which allow the reopening of conferences and generates investment and employment, without risk.

“We remain as a world example, as an attractive destination to the world and part of that was due to the prompt strategy of having declared tourism an essential activity for Quintana Roo, that was the first big step,” he said.

He highlighted having listened to the interest of several presidents, such as those of Spain, Indonesia, Bermuda and France in supporting the tourism sector, since they know its importance, “while here, federal policy is different to the extent that the Promotion Tourist Council of Mexico has disappeared.”

This, he continued, further recognizes the great effort that states and businessmen make to boost activity in the country.

“We were pleased to hear the leaders agree on that message. Hopefully the change can take place, especially now that there will be a global reopening and greater competition,” he added.
