Mérida, Yucatán — Before the end of January 2016, work will begin on a new hospital, a downtown convention center, “La Casa de la Música” in the historic center, and the second stage of a judicial complex.
These four major projects, announced by the governor’s office last week, will boost Yucatán’s construction industry.
The state leader of the Mexican Chamber of Construction Industry (CMIC), Edgar Valdez Conde, hailed the government’s announcement, after a year of disappointing numbers.
In the first half of the year, the state’s construction industry recorded a slump, falling 34.16 percent behind the same period in 2014.
The announcement earlier this year that the federal government was cutting its public works budget, including the the train transpeninsular train project in Yucatán, was a major trigger of the construction sector crisis.
