Mexico President Felipe Calderon has officially selected Los Cabos as the host city for the 2012 G20 Summit, which will be held in June of 2012 and Emprhotur, the Hotel and Tourist Industry Association of La Paz, supports all state a federal preparations for the annual international event of the 20 most economically influential countries in world.

“Without a doubt,” said Agustin Olachea Nogueda Presidente of Emprhotur, “this is it a great accomplishment for President Calderon to bring the G20 for the first time to Mexico and we recognize the work of Governor Marcos Covarrubias Villaseñor has made to celebrate this event in Los Cabos, just a short distance from La Paz on the modern 4-lane highway.”

Mexico will invest 623 million pesos to host the G20 Summit according to Rogelio Granguillhome, Director of the Mexican Agency of International Cooperation for Development.

This will bring not only some long needed investment in infrastructure to Baja California Sur, which has suffered tremendously from the economic slow down in the US, but Olachea Nogueda states that La Paz will also considerably benefit commercially with the visit to the capital city by many of the participants.

Emprhotur’s President emphasizes that it would be most desirable that the investment made to celebrate this important event include businesses from around the State and from various sectors of the economy to truly benefit Sudcalifornianos and help all of those who have been affected by the economic crisis. Therefore, Emprhotur is asking the State Government and Governor Marcos Covarrubias to invite all productive sectors from La Paz and the State to participate in the infrastructure and services needed to host the 2012 G20 Summit in Los Cabos. “It would be best that if the investment realized to host such a great event could spill over towards other sectors of the economy in La Paz and the State, and not just commercially or towards the tourism industry.”
