If the Carnival takes place, Mazatlan could exceed 700 million pesos in economic benefit


Although there is much uncertainty surrounding its realization, if the International Carnival of Mazatlan is held in its 2022 edition, it could exceed the economic spill of the past 2020 in which 700 million pesos were touched, income that would boost the local economy.

Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Considering that reservations for carnival are already at 60 percent without any cancellation, the National Chamber of Commerce, Services and Tourism in southern Sinaloa estimates that the economic spill could exceed that captured during the last celebration in 2020.

According to Roberto Lem González, head of this chamber organization, in an interview for Informative Reaction, he supported the hypothesis that hotel reservations increase because there have been no cancellations, in addition to the fact that so far there is 60 percent occupancy

“It could happen since there is no cancellation, everything goes on time and in the form so that the maximum party could be held, we are betting on that, especially due to the vocation that we have as a Chamber of Commerce to be safeguarding human pathways” , He said.

The also businessman explained that citizens and businesses have learned to “cope with these times”, that is to say that there is a resilience around the ‘New Normality’. That is why he accepted that, if necessary, it could be feasible to use other roads to further lengthen the space and ensure a regulated capacity.

“In the parade, if necessary and the authority so determines, then to be able to use the length of the boardwalk; including some other roads and that it be carried out, that it be carried out since many people are also waiting for it, logically because of the economic benefit that it represents”, suggested Lem González.

If the International Carnival of Mazatlan takes place in its 2022 edition, the president stressed that the economic spill of the past 2020 could be overcome, in which the 700 million pesos were touched, income that would boost the local economy.

For example, the last Carnival that took place, we had an economic spill of between 680 million pesos to 700, we are hoping that if the Carnival takes place, this amount will be exceeded.
