To safeguard the health of all members, as well as to continue to respect the protocols and indications that the health authorities have reiterated, the event was held virtually as CANACINTRA members voted in unity to support the reorganization.

During his speech as President-elect, he mentioned: “Without a doubt, 2020 was a complex year for everyone, characterized by uncertainty and by constant changes in public policies, emanating from the 3 levels of government, which seem not to be projected to promote competitiveness in our companies and they have become great barriers for those of us who invest, generate employment and benefit the community. “
In addition to the above, the leader of the business community took the opportunity to thank the associates for the trust they provided to formally assume the Presidency of CANACINTRA Mexicali, as well as expressing their commitment and enthusiasm at the head of the Organization as well as presenting the members of the new Board of Directors of Canacintra Mexicali.
