Carlos Orvañanos Rea, head of the State’s Institute of Investment and financing, explained that although the state’s economy depends 95% on tourism, the communications and technology (IT) industry is growing in Quintana Roo.

In that sense, the municipal government of Cancun is seeking todiversify this sectorthrough the launching of the brand “Cancun Tech City” in all of México bythe end of 2017.

The brand was already released in the United States a few weeks ago todifferent universities in order to attract new talent, generate a social impact, and promote Cancun not only as a tourism destination but also as a tech hub, with state government and technology companies going hand in hand.

The Companies

“Karims Company” is catalogued as one of the most important groups in Central America and one of the five best companies on this field worldwide.

“AT&T” will build an important office here that will be equipped with technological infrastructure aimed at connecting the whole state, especially at parks and public transportation units.

In this new governmental program, “Interlingua” will offer language training courses, since the technology sector requires bilingual staff.
