Video: Foreign community had its first service fair ‘Mazatlan Cares’


The director of Capta, Astrid Macías Fregoso, announced the details of the meeting that will bring together the three levels of government in response to problems of foreigners

With the presence of municipal authorities and special guests, the event was carried out in a bilingual manner where it was reported that this is the first time that this type of approach is carried out in response to the demands of expats, and snowbird visitors who have expressed their concerns.

María Astrid Macías Fregoso, director of the Mazatlan Tourist Assistance and Protection Center (CAPTA) indicated that this event for the foreign community will be the opportunity to start dialogues with French, Japanese, Canadian and Americans living in the port to learn of their needs and give attention to problems they have.

There have been cases of violence against foreigners where they do not know who to go to and sometimes the procedures are quite bureaucratic, such is the case Dianne tells a reporter about a foreign resident.

“Facilitating cooperation and recognizing the potential of this event to activate, strengthen and sustain a shared vision of the relationships that will develop between the people who make up the foreign community and us.”

It is estimated that there are 5 to 7 thousand foreigners who live in Mazatlan fulltime.

Macías Fregoso said that in winter periods around 30 thousand foreign tourists “Snowbirds” visit the city, in addition up to seven thousand, have homes here, so it is important that the municipal government has these types of events to make them feel more comfortable in their periods of stay.
