He added that the current administration led by the municipal president, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, seeks to show a change in the attraction of foreign investment for Mazatlan.

“The new federal policy is, through the embassies, to start making the issue of both economic and tourist promotion of the country. We are also focusing on that work. We already have the theme of the Spanish Embassy, but we also have contact with the Japanese Embassy. “

The municipal official mentioned that in June of next year a Japanese boat will come to Mazatlan to do a kind of social service, but what they are looking for is that they also come to see the potential of Mazatlan.

“We are working very hard in that niche, in power, through the representations, through the sister cities, to make Mazatlan seen in those destinations, for investment, for tourism and for everything that can be done”, concluded.
