Mérida, Yucatán — Gov. Mauricio Vila Dosal met recently with John S. Creamer, the Chargé d’Affaires at the U.S. consulate here, to discuss issues related to economic development and trade.

The talks focused on garnering higher quality jobs for the state, technological innovation and the establishment of partnerships that help strengthen Yucatán’s educational system.

They also addressed the opportunity that Yucatan offers foreign investors and visitors as a state that stands out for its high levels of security.

The governor also spoke with Courtney Beale, the consul general and chief U.S. officer in Mérida, who was present at the meeting, about continuing a program in which Yucatecan police receive U.S. training on tactics and procedures.

At the end of the meeting, they toured the main halls of the Government Palace and exchanged gifts. Vila Dosal handed Creamer the “Enciclopedia Yucatanense” who reciprocated with the book, “Three Centuries of Engravings at the National Gallery of Washington.”

The meeting was also attended by Ernesto Herrera Novelo, the secretary of economic development and labor; Bernardo Cisneros Buenfil, director of research, innovation and higher education, and Álvaro Juanes Laviada, coordinator of state advisors.
