Foresees major growth in sector.
On the Second day of the Tianguis Turístico México 2015, Mexican Secretary of Tourism Claudia Ruiz Massieu, took a tour of her own among the event’s different pavilions.
During her review, the federal minister stopped at the state of Sinaloa pavilion where she was received by governor Mario López Valdez, who accompanied her at the pavilion’s brief ribbon-cutting ceremony which was attended by the Sinaloa Secretary of Tourism and four mayors of Sinaloa towns with Pueblo Mágico (Lit. “Magic Towns”) designations.
Further on, Secretary Ruiz Massieu reviewed the exhibits for the states of Michoacán, Querétaro, Quintana Roo, Chiapas, Veracruz, among others. She also assisted as a guest of honor for the inauguration ceremony for the state of Puebla pavilion, which was headed by her Poblano counterpart, Roberto Antonio Trauwitz.
During an interview with México News Network, Ruiz Massieu referred to the Tianguis as a showcase for communication which has so far stood out for several reasons, including how extensive the venue has proven to be as well as the number of stands which have been raised during the 40th edition of this event. She added that the Tianguis is “instrumental to consolidate this year’s growth trend” in tourism.
She further forecasted that this year will also be very important for Mexico as far as tourism goes seeing how records are currently being broken. In the case of Acapulco, this trend is equally important, as its hotels are currently registering an occupancy level between 88 and 94%.
