The construction of the Mazatlán-Durango and its geographical conditions are leading the industrial and logistics sector to go hand in hand with the tourist
MAZATLÁN.- Mazatlán is multifaceted, it can be a place with livestock, agriculture, and fishing, a dream tourist destination well positioned at the national level, and now also, a destination geared towards the industrial and logistics, that few can boast and with a view to being highly competitive.
Juan José Arellano Hernández, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Grupo ARHE, mentioned that since the construction of the Mazatlán-Durango superhighway, Mazatlán was already placed in a strategic and geographical point that had to grow, develop and become an investment portfolio for this sector.
“The intention is that we have an investment inventory as a destination, that we be observed nationally and internationally as an investment portfolio of different types,” he declared.
Arellano Hernández pointed out that the industrial warehouses in Mazatlán are already saturated, that is why exponential growth is required in this sense, and that others, in addition to the Aerospace Park, join, together with the Mazatlan Logistic Center, that is a link and that the port becomes a benchmark in the country.
“We were late, I think that around 2013 and the few spaces in industrial buildings that exist are saturated, there are no longer spaces available, from 2013 to 2021 I think many years have passed and we have lost opportunities with possible investments,” he said.
The businessman added that he estimates that by 2024 there will not only be parks such as the MLC and Aerospace, but other logistics and industrial parks that make Mazatlán grow and raise the quality of life, generating jobs, and ending each year with new projects.
He argued that Mazatlán has all the necessary elements to be a first-world logistics center, with spaces to exploit what the market demands and with subdivisions to grow that are looking for buyers who migrate to Mazatlán.
Exciting Secretary of the Economy, Javier Gaxiola
We Leave Strategic Projects That Will Detonate Sinaloa
Satisfied because a lot was done for the growth, development and economy of Sinaloa; Strategic projects were left behind and this was recognized in the transition stage by the new Secretary of the Economy, Javier Gaxiola; the state will no longer depend on the primary sector, the former head of that portfolio, Javier Lizárraga, said in the interview.
An official during the years of Quirino Ordaz Coppel’s government, Lizárraga recalled that we are major producers of agricultural matters in the country and the first shrimp producer; In mezcal today we are in a good first level with important distilleries.
In the interview after having a private meeting with the mayor of Mazatlán, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, Javier Lizárraga said that what satisfied him the most about having been Secretary of the Economy is leaving strategic projects that will mostly detonate the state in many areas such as what will be the petrochemicals and natural gas to the north of the state. “Topolobampo is called to be a great national benchmark in petrochemicals,” he emphasized.
In southern Sinaloa, the aerospace park that will build drones, but which will actually be airplanes; and “logistics centers” are being set up near the Mazatlan airport.
The leader of the company Café Marino says that the government is dissatisfied with not being able to help the largest number of MSMEs; micro, small and medium enterprises are the engine of the country of any developing country in the world; I do not see programs until today to support those companies. For example, he added, helping the hot dog carts, the seafood carts, the tamales pots, the aesthetics; Redfosin is needed; that is what makes me “anguish, among other things, to help small entrepreneurs, especially those who are just starting out,” said the now-former Secretary of the Economy.
Port of Mazatlan recovering and expanding with new cargo and cruise ships terminals
2021 represents a better panorama, unlike the past, since in these months tourist cruises returned and loads of various goods from the world were reactivated
2021 began to generate a “small wave” recovery and mobility of cargo terminal in the port of Mazatlan, which means a percentage light from 5 to 7 percent, depending on some products, after more than one year of suffering the situation of the COVID19 pandemic, said Mariel Aquileo Ancona Infanzón.
The general director of the Comprehensive Port Administration of Mazatlán, indicated that one of the advantages is that this year, the robbery of tourist boats to the port, has become an activity that gives fluidity to the dock, in which, they estimate that the next year increases the numbers to which it would close this year.
“But we are already equalizing it and I hope that next year we can still increase what we had in 2019. Every month there were cruises, every month there was cargo, this started until March 2020, so right now many things are being recovered, I I think that right now we will have 7 percent more less, we are almost reaching the same, in some places it has been more, in wood it has increased, but in general there are places that are higher, others lower ”.
Ancona Infanzón said that 2020 marked a very complex year in the world, where the Mazatlán port terminal suffered, after the paralysis that caused the growth of the coronavirus pandemic, but in the end, this 2021 has been recovering little by little.
