Velarde Cárdenas pointed out that accompanied by the tourism sector, the arrival of the industry or industrial sector in Mazatlán is generating new investment conversations, new associated projects that will directly or indirectly make Mazatlán grow, mainly towards the north.
“ Development does not stop, we are estimating to close with more than 15 billion investment, we already have 10 billion investment accumulated in what goes from November (2021) to date and, this both commercial and the housing issue as the theme developments and apartments the growth has been exponential”, he said.
The municipal official added that the interest is, above all, from foreign and national investors, as in the case of a Panamanian businessman who recently opened a club in a commercial plaza in the Golden Zone, forcing local investors to continue betting on his destiny.
