U.S. Consul General visits Quintana Roo Congress

Chetumal, Q.R. — The Consul General of the United States in Mérida, Dorothy Ngutter, visited the headquarters of the Legislative Branch of Quintana Roo in Chetumal.

Renán Sánchez Tajonar, President of the Government and Political Coordination Board of the XVII Legislature, held a work meeting with Ngutter in order to join efforts and strengthen cooperation for the benefit of the promotion of Quintana Roo and Cozumel.

During the meeting, the legislator emphasized the importance of continuing to promote tourism with the United States to improve the economy of Quintana Roo families.

Likewise, he placed special emphasis on Cozumel, the head of the district he represents, as it is the main cruise destination in Mexico. He stressed its many great natural beauties, stressing the importance of working together so that more visitors continue to arrive, which benefits island families.

At the meeting, it was stated that five of the 10 most used commercial air routes between Mexico and the United States have Quintana Roo as their destination. He said for this reason, it is important to diversify the offer at the Cozumel and Chetumal airports in addition to continuing with the consolidation of arrivals in Cancun.

Sánchez also agreed to manage training in legislative matters in order to continue promoting the professionalization of the Legislative Branch, since he pointed out, that an efficient and well-prepared Legislative Branch is essential for the development of the state.

Sánchez delivered the document to Ngutter that details the Legislative Agenda of the H. XVII State Legislature 2022-2024, so she understands the issues and initiatives of law or of reforms that the Congress of Quintana Roo is working on.
