Guadalajara, Mexico, Dec. 5 (Notimex) .- The coordinator of the Council of Industrial Chambers of Jalisco (CCIJ, for its acronym in Spanish), Daniel Curiel, highlighted the economic progress of this entity after it contributes almost 10 percent of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
In the framework of the session of the CCIJ, the leader of the industrial sector pointed out that these achievements that the entity has had are only achieved by the support that the state government offers to the productive sectors, as well as by the joint work of the academy and the private initiative.
For that reason, he recognized the cabinet of the outgoing governor, Aristoteles Sandoval, after they managed to move Jalisco forward "in a very spectacular way, with figures that had never been had".
"Exports have grown, countries have diversified and today Jalisco does not sell 80 percent of its products to the United States, it only sells about 70 percent that is below the national average and that is because they were searched new markets, "he said.
He stressed that now Jalisco products reach more than 170 countries around the world. He also highlighted the work of outgoing tourism secretary, Enrique Ramos, after he managed to position Puerto Vallarta.
He added that now there is the arrival of cruises every day of the week and there are flights that previously were not available for the arrival of foreign tourists. Also, all of Jalisco is recognized as a high level tourist pole.
"Jalisco is today a pillar of the economy in Mexico, it is a pillar for Mexico to remain a great country," he reiterated.
