Martin Aviña Sánchez, general secretary of said organization, stressed that the tourism sector and airlines are also the most affected by this crisis, which has already hit rock bottom in their particular case as a group.

“In this sense, we are making society known so that they see that we are the ambassadors of tourism, of all the people who come to know and fall in love with our state, with our city,” he said.

For his part, Milton Blanco, president of the association, claimed that his work has not been recognized by the authorities or by society.
