Governor Cuauhtémoc Blanco Bravo inaugurated an Integrative Development Center, in the municipality of Yautepec, Morelos, where he also witnessed the signing of the Collaboration Agreement for the Support and Strengthening of the Agricultural Sector, between the Secretariat of Agricultural Development (Sedagro) and the Roech Food Group.
The construction, equipping and operation of this space for coexistence and integration, located in the Barrio de San Juan, was achieved thanks to the coordinated work between Sedagro, the Secretariats of Social Development (Sedeso) and Public Works (SOP).
The Integration Center aims to create a development pole for livestock producers, and simultaneously contribute to the reconstruction of the social fabric, giving the general population the opportunity to learn a trade.
Likewise, Katia Isabel Herrera Quevedo, head of Sedagro, specified that timely attention is given to agricultural producers, by bringing the services of the dependency closer to the productive units, so that they are not forced to go from office to office.
He announced that in the place are the National System of Individual Identification of Livestock (Siniiga); the Regional Cattle Union of Morelos, and that they are requesting the installation to the Livestock Committee.
For his part, Jonathan Baltazar Mejía Alegría, general director of Social Infrastructure and Attention to Indigenous Affairs and Vulnerable Groups, of the Sedeso, explained that there will be multiple workshops for the generation of self-employment in the artisan, food, agricultural, artistic field and cultural.
He stated that “The most vulnerable groups will find an opportunity to learn trades and develop micro-entrepreneurial skills so that they can generate their own economic income.”
In addition, it will function as an exhibition and sales center for local community consumption and products may be offered to tourists arriving in Morelos.
Leticia Nolasco Ortigoza, in charge of the SOP dispatch, mentioned that more than 11 million pesos were invested for the building; the work includes multipurpose rooms, computer workshop, library, computer area, community dining room, kitchen and two bathroom modules.
In this event, Cuauhtémoc Blanco witnessed the signing of the Collaboration Agreement for the Accompaniment and Strengthening of the Agricultural Sector, which in this first stage benefits amaranth producers in the municipality of Temoac.
