The president of the “Tres Islas” Hotel Association, José Ramón Manguart Sánchez, has high expectations for hotel occupancy between now and the end of the year.
MAZATLAN. – For the president of the “Tres Islas” Hotel Association, José Ramón Manguart Sánchez, jobs are not being lost in Mazatlán as in other cities, but quite the opposite, more job templates are being sought.
This, after a study carried out by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography, where it reported that, during the period from July to December of this year, 214,545 jobs were lost in the service sector compared to the second quarter of 2022 throughout the country.
In this report, it was broken down that the activities that reported the greatest job losses are social services with 218,763 jobs eliminated; in restaurants and accommodation services, 124,434 places were lost; and in various services, 9 thousand 730 positions.
“Given the current circumstances of Mazatlán, it is one of the few privileged destinations that has not been in need of a reduction in workforce, including, perhaps, many of the hotels have a staff deficit due to the shortage of personnel” he declared.
This shortage of personnel, he pointed out, could be attributed to the growth of Mazatlán itself, to the construction of new hotels, condominium and apartment towers and other areas of opportunity, especially in the new generations, who are betting on the ventures.
Manguart Sánchez expressed that this deficit is not exclusive to the tourism sector, but to all sectors in general, which, as part of a strategy to integrate more personnel, are opting for the option of bringing people from other cities.
“It is not something particular that not only happens in Sinaloa, but throughout the country, it is an issue that we have seen from the Mexican Association, there have been proposals to search for and bring people from other states and comply with the labor card… It is They have introduced people from other cities to Mazatlán,” he said.
Tourism will be allowed to come from here until the end of the year
Passing the revolutionary bridge, the president of the “Tres Islas” Hotel Association explained that expectations are high, this is due to the fact that occupancies are estimated to be between 80 and 90 percent occupancy during all the following weekends.
“It’s good. The expectation is to be between 80-90 percent occupancy between now and the end of the year, mainly from national tourism, especially from the (northern) corridor where highway tourism is maintained, ”he commented.
