One initiative of the government is to build clusters. For example, we have the automotive cluster and the chemical cluster; we have the fashion cluster; we also have the agrotechnological cluster, just to mention some. What we want from the clusters is to get the knowledge of the companies that belong to the clusters so they can become more efficient and competitive in the region. We have the investments, what we want now is to develop the supply chain for the local entrepreneurs to become suppliers of those big investments. Mr Márquez, when he assumed the governance of the state of Guanajuato, he had a good initiative. He said that the concept should be led by citizens, so that way everything would be more transparent, and we could achieve real growth between government and society. We all work together for a common purpose.
If you have opportunities to do history tourism, you have San Miguel de Allende, also Guanajuato is a World Heritage site, for example. If you are looking for tourism for health, you can find thermal waters and medical resources. If you want to start a new hotel, we need more hotels. Guanajuato is the newest jewel in the country for starting businesses that are related to tourism.
If you have tourist hotels, for example, you can receive tourists, and you can receive businessmen. We need business, and the businesses need tourists. If you are looking for agriculture, you can make a great business because the restaurant and hotel industries are already in Guanajuato. We are working hard to offer more infrastructure for new business entrepreneurs and to receive more tourism, for example, more roads, more aeroplanes to arrive to Guanajuato. We are giving the momentum so that 20 years into the future, we can say that we arrived in Guanajuato at the moment it started to open the door for the world.
