Ruiz Massieu thanked the people of Acapulco for their hospitality and praised the positive decision of the President Enrique Peña Nieto, to bringing back the Tianguis to the venue where it was born 4 decades ago.
She highlighted that the present Tianguis has been the largest of its kind ever held, with an exhibition area of 22,500m2, 2,500 exhibitors, 690 buyers (266 national and 424 international) and the presence of countries from 5 continents.
Ruiz Massieu indicated that this year’s edition stood out due to the implementation of technology, which undoubtedly will be what provides the basis for the following editions and is itself part of the global paperless trend. This event also featured optimal data transfers in which buyers and exhibitors ensured the confidentiality of their information and its correct transmission.
Finally, she also highlighted the presence of former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair; the CEO of ProMéxico, Francisco González Díaz; and Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs, José Antonio Meade Kuribreña.
