López Obrador analyzes selling Espíritu beach plots in Sinaloa
The president, accompanied by Governor Quirino Ordaz, toured the area and declared that he is contemplating several options.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and the governor of Sinaloa, Quirino Ordaz, made a tour of the Espíritu beach, the property of the National Fund for Tourism Promotion (Fonatur), land that could be sold or promote tourism development.
Accompanied by businessmen like Daniel Chávez, from Grupo Vidanta, President López Obrador visited the Fonatur beach house, which is one of the facilities built along the 2,881 hectares occupied by the land that was acquired since 2008.
The land of approximately 42 kilometres was purchased by the federal government from the former governor of Sinaloa, Antonio Toledo.
Since 2008, the federal government has invested one thousand 403 million pesos in the purchase of the land, as well as the project of a hotel, roads, a boardwalk and other works.
Now, President López Obrador analyzes selling or developing all that land.
"Nothing else we are going to see what is more convenient, if finish it with a government promotion, with the private initiative, or auction it, that is: 'Let's see, it cost so much', we need money for the prisoners and for other activities; we give the facilities for tourism development, to see if there are companies that want to invest and we could do it that way, "he said.
