In order to visit each of the major tourist destinations in the state of Guanajuato, the  State Congress Tourism Comission held a meeting in San Miguel de Allende to analyze the needs of this city in terms of tourism and strengthen its tourist attractions.

It was a nomadic session of the State Congress Tourism Commission, at the premises of the old City Hall, where besides members of the Tourism Commission, were present mayor Ricardo Villarreal, secretary of tourism Fernando Olivera Rocha, and federal deputy Veronica Angundis, as well as representatives of service providers from San Miguel de Allende.

At the meeting, deputies Lorenzo Salvador, Juan Jose Alvarez, Araceli Medina, María Ledezma, and Mario Alejandro, listened to the propositions and concerns of the service providers of this municipality to improve quality and attract more tourists with innovative projects that may turn this sector into a more efficient and timely one.

On the side of the service providers, Laura Torres Septien, president of the hotel industry in San Miguel de Allende, proposed that all bedroom houses that rent apartments and unregistered hotels should be regulated, to prevent further unfair trade in this municipality, which, according to Torres, affects the local economy by such clandestine public servants not paying taxes.

Because of that, deputy Alejandro Navarro Saldaña closed saying, “the local Congress is working hard to promote the steady growth of tourist activity, with the purpose of obtaining better living standards for Guanajuato’s population based on the great potential of the tourist attractions that we have.”
