Guasave, Sinaloa.- The municipal president of Sinaloa pointed out that in terms of projects, the issue of tourism will be prioritized because in the municipality for eight years until today most of the income is from this activity.
Rolando Mercado mentioned that this could be in the short to medium term and that they bring projects from the Ministry of Economy to promote several ideas, for which a meeting has already been held with the head of said Secretariat, who is in the best position to consolidate some of these projects and make micro-investments to be able to trigger tourism even more.
He mentioned that they are negotiating with the Conagua, through the support of the state governor Rubén Rocha Moya, the desilting of the Sinaloa River, from the Puente del Amor to the dam, since that would allow them to give a better view of the boardwalk, which is the best tourist attraction of the municipality and the runoff of water in the dike would be improved for the transporters that pass through there and not so much water is thrown away. Catamarans would also be given a better channel for rides along the boardwalk.
