Three mega-projects for state up for federal consideration

Cancun, Q.R. — Three state projects for Quintana Roo are being considered as part of the federal government’s development plan that would see the projects promoted internationally.

Eduardo Ortiz Jasso, general director of Agencia de Proyectos de Quintana Roo, says that the three mega-projects set for the state include the construction of Puente Calinda, the modernization of the Tulum-Bacalar highway and the two Cancun light trains. Those trains, he says, will travel from the center of the city and the Cancun Hotel Zone to feed into the upcoming Maya Train.

He explained that the projects, which are an investment in the order of 14.8 billion peso, are being considered for promotion in the federal government’s National Development Plan.

He says that having the projects promoted internationally would attract public-private investments and trigger massive employment opportunities.

Ortiz Jasso says that these projects have continually been promoted as part of the investment portfolio Proyectos México and are being monitored by various international investment agencies and groups, especially in Europe, where he says, several companies have expressed interest.

He says they should know by April 15 if they have federal support.
