The Quintana Roo delegation of FONATUR (National Fund for Tourism Promotion) met with a tourism delegation from Japan to underscore the business opportunities that exist in the state and to explain the development programs that have made Cancun a global tourist pole, so that Japan can replicate the success story.

Juan González Castelán, regional delegate of FONATUR, stated that the meeting was very constructive from the outset, triggering the interest to bring a delegation of Japanese deputies to study and analyze the activities that have been carried out in each of Quintana Roo’s tourism brands,

“We participated in the marketing area, the institutional liaison area, the process for development , the objective, the mission and everything that has generated growth in economic benefits, opportunities, jobs, etc. “, he explained.

He pointed out that Japan has recently approved a new law for tourism within its legislative system, so they are preparing to be able to receive more tourists. They came to gain an insight into the success that Cancun has generated as a global brand.

Assured growth in Hotel Zone

In other topics he highlighted that FONATUR still has a portfolio of properties to offer in Cancun, being Lomas de Vista Hermosa, a real estate project of 8.5 hectares that is in force in the process of generating appraisals, aside from what will be the Eco Park, additionally the lands of Marina Cozumel.

“We already have letters of interest from people who are interested in buying, obviously the process is first to have the appraisal, then the part of the auction between the interested parties, where they are setting the price they want to pay and the best bidder is the winner, “he said.

He said that with the imminent change of government at the federal level, dates have not yet been established on when these auctions will take place. Several negotiations will remain until the next administration come into force, including the Malecón case Cutwater.

“Both the tourism secretary and the director have been addressing this issue.  We have to wait for the answer that the court is going to give, and then we will see what the arrangements will be, “he said.
