Mayor promotes tourism and investment during trip to New Mexico

Village of Ruidoso, New Mexico, USA. April 8, 2016.  On a visit to the Village of Ruidoso, New Mexico, Mayor Kiko Munro emphasized the premise of his administration is that Puerto Peñasco no longer remain a best kept secret but rather open up to the world. During his visit, Mayor Munro signed a Sisterhood Agreement with Ruidoso Mayor Tom Battin, which will allow for cultural, academic, and economic exchanges between the two communities.

Mayor Munro stressed in being the closest beach destination to New Mexico, it is important to promote the upcoming flight between Cd. Juárez and Puerto Peñasco, which is set to begin June 26th. This represents an area of opportunity for people from southern NM to more easily access the beaches along the Sea of Cortez.

“With agreements such as what we have signed,” added Mayor Munro, “the goal is that these approaches be real, that we be able to dialog face to face in order to create trust and synergy with markets such as Chihuahua and Texas, who already visit us particularly in the summer, but we also need to grow towards New Mexico.”

Kiko Munro explained the document promotes an exchange of experiences in order to improve the administration of both communities, through responsible policies that strengthen benefits in the quality of life of their residents.

Ruidoso Mayor Tom Battin stated he is similarly optimistic about creating a better future for both communities, which both have an interest in tourism and face challenges of increased infrastructure for visitors as well as residents.

Albuquerque Mexican Consul Efrén Leyva also took part in the event, as witness, and proclaimed April 8th as Puerto Peñasco Day.

Others present at the diverse events held in Ruidoso, N.M. included Puerto Peñasco Economic Development Coordinator, Rubén Sánchez Lizárraga, Sonoran Governmental representative in N.M., Carlos José Gutiérrez Moreno, Village of Ruidoso Development Director, Greg Cory, and Senator Bill Burt, among other officials and invited guests.
