The president of the National Chamber of the Construction Industry (CMIC) in the State of Mexico, Enrique Maza Cotero, trusted that the renewal of the federal Congress, the local Congress and the municipalities of greater opportunities for builders to have greater participation in public works projects.
“We are doing the same with the private initiative and with the public sector we hope to have greater participation. This year the federal budget for infrastructure was prioritized to states such as Campeche and Tabasco, the idea is that there are more resources for all entities ”.
He recalled that the last elections were an exemplary democratic exercise and the state of Mexico was no exception. “All the participants made a free choice, there were some minimal details that did not go further, we were allowed to hear proposals and work plans both aspiring local and federal deputies and municipal presidents ”.
In general, he said, most of those who were elected have every intention of carrying out more infrastructure, which will promote the development of the communities and therefore the economic reactivation, especially because Of the 2,000 construction companies that stopped activities or closed permanently, only 100 are from Mexico.
Maza Cotero said that some municipalities have debts with construction companies and the promise is that they will be covered before the end of their term. The important thing is that the legal representatives present their bills to the municipal governments and pressure to receive their payments, because with the change the risk is that the new authorities will not want to pay.
“We know that a change is coming and the arrival of new municipal administrations leads to council agreements, which greatly bog down the collection process for the builders. Unfortunately many authorities do not want to recognize what their predecessors hired and refuse to pay”.
