The purpose of this agreement is to open the possibility of developing academic stays of Sinaloa students in this province, to take advantage of the experience that Valencians have in aquaculture, agriculture and tourism.
“We also came to visit the Valencia Aquarium, with which the new Aquarium that is being built in Mazatlan, will have an agreement in terms of research, education, protection and care for the environment, that is something that will be prioritized in the new aquarium that we will have in Mazatlan”, said governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel.
