After thanking the participation of the attendees governor Vega explained that he knows San Felipe and many of its residents and with a background in the private sector he can fully understand the challenges that businesses in general are currently facing and knows what has to be done to support our investors and entrepreneurs.
Governor Vega stated that his administration will be one that becomes a strong promoter of the efforts and investments of the private sector of San Felipe. He explained he is aware of the most sensitive issues and is willing to make and take the required actions and investments here.
He recognized the enormous contributions from Pat Buttler to put San Felipe on the map and praised the works of jesús Carrillo and all the people involved in the Economic Development Committee.
In an unprecedented statement historically made by any other Baja California government; governor Kiko Vega explained that in order to successfully support the local agenda, at some point within the month of February representatives of the entire government of Baja California will converge here and take all the steps to begin the works for the new San Felipe we all are willing to see and live in. Also the involvement of the Mexicali mayor and representatives of the Federal Agencies will participate in this unprecedented project.
This in the words of governor Vega will help to avoid dispersing the efforts and enable a common ground to solve the issues.
Governor Vega also considers a priority to continue and finish the pending works of the airport since there are more than one airliner almost ready to deploy services in what will finally become a fully functional San Felipe International Airport and facilities.
After many many years of uncertainty San Felipe is finally receiving the enthusiasm and sincere commitment of the state government.
Justice, health, education, sports, urban infrastructure, communications, land tenure, employment, safety, legality, tourism, ecology and human rights are but a few of the topics that will be covered thoroughly starting in February.
This time around the governor was accompanied by his Secretary of Tourism who in December greatly helped unblocking some issues pertaining to the organization of the San Felipe 250 race. After finishing his historic visit to San Felipe, Governor Kiko Vega continued on with his tour through the east coast.
