In a statement, he called on those working in tourism not to confuse government and politics with the people of the United States, and not to project these divergences to the US citizens who visit Mexico.
In a visit to Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, the main Mexican destination that attracts more American visitors each year, he reiterated that in Mexico tourism is the engine of economic growth and job creation.
In the current U.S. – Mexico relations, it is important to maintain the quality of tourism services and the cordiality with our foreign visitors, as they come to enjoy our attractions such as gastronomy, nature, sun, beach and culture.
The federal official insisted that “now more than ever we must take care of the national tourist, but also the international tourist, and in no way forget the good treatment and warmth the Mexicans have with those who visit us.”
De la Madrid Cordero made it clear that the government works to make the country’s tourist destinations an example of well-being, “because the best insurance we have is that our people live well.”
