Sinaloa builders foresee a complicated 2022


The Cmic leader in the southern zone considered that this year was good for the sector despite the pandemic

Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- A few days after the end of the year, the construction companies of Mazatlán register low levels of occupation, since the public work is already finished, only the private one remains, said Guillermo Trewartha Domínguez.

The president of the Mexican Chamber of the Construction Industry in the southern zone evaluated this year as a regular in public works.

“Overall, Mazatlán did well, a lot of infrastructure was created, we have already finished Gabriel Leyva Avenue, and although there is no public work, there is still a little private,” he said.

Trewartha Domínguez commented that they will have to wait until 2022 for the sector to reactivate, although it does not look easy because there will be no major works.

He indicated that they have to look for works and not be aware of the government giving us everything, they have to work with private initiative.

“It doesn’t look easy, it looks difficult, but that’s how construction is going up and down, but we see it with optimism, they say that there won’t be big works, but small ones and hopefully there will be enough for everyone,” he said.

The Cmic leader is confident that if the fourth wave of Covid-19 occurs it will not affect Sinaloa and the sector so much, because it would be a disaster for the economy.

He added that the public works are expected to start in early February.

“We all need to take care of ourselves so that the economy does not stop and we can continue working because a fourth wave like the third would be a disaster for the economy,” he concluded.

This year has been very difficult for the construction sector in Sinaloa. In June, El Sol de Mazatlán reported that due to the lack of public works and the Covid-19 pandemic, at least 30 construction businessmen left the activity.

And it is that of 90 partners that the Mexican Chamber of the Construction Industry had a southern delegation three years ago, currently, only 60 remain, and the majority closed due to economic problems generated by the pandemic.
