28 2019 February

Tampico, Tamaulipas.- Governor Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca took protest to the 2019 Steering Committee of the Council of Business Institutions of the South of Tamaulipas (CIEST), an organization made up of 18 chambers and associations representing more than 14 thousand companies, dedicated to promoting employment and increasing productive investment in the conurbation of Tampico, Madero and Altamira.

For the 2019 period, the Steering Committee will be chaired by Jesús del Carmen Abud Saldívar, who was the president of the Mexican Chamber of the Construction Industry (CMIC) in Tamaulipas. He leaves the ownership of CIEST Eduardo Manzur Manzur, who served in the position in the 2017 and 2018 periods.

"There are many projects for the south of the state but also many challenges that we have to face together with the Government, Government and Productive Sectors with a single purpose: to improve the quality of life of the families that live in the south of the state, to guarantee that they have all the necessary instruments, from infrastructure, services, to be more competitive and productive, "said the Governor of the State.

He added: "Those who generate jobs are the entrepreneurs, they are the productive sectors, not the governments. Governments create the conditions for these investments and those jobs to be generated. And that's what my government is committed to. "

He acknowledged the work carried out by Eduardo Manzur Manzur, outgoing president of CIEST during his tenure at 2017 and 2018, during which time he gave new projection to the business body and promoted the main issues on the region's economic agenda.

On the other hand, Jesús del Carmen Abud Saldivar, new president of the Council of Business Institutions of the South of Tamaulipas, assured that the businessmen of the south of the state "will continue looking for the coincidences and adding the wills of Government and Society so that our companies continue being competitive and can continue to have confidence. "

Members of CIEST were present at the ceremony; the mayor of Tampico, Jesús Nader Nasralah; the mayor of Altamira, Alma Laura Amparán Cruz; the Secretary of Tourism, Fernando Olivera Rocha; Secretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Raúl Ruíz Villegas, among other authorities.
