On Monday Jan.30, the State University of Guanajuato (UG), and the Guanajuato’s Tourism Secretariat signed a collaboration agreement aimed at promoting the state nationally and internationally as a world-class tourist destination, through the Speaker Guanajuato program”.

This agreement was signed by Luis Felipe Guerrero Agripino, UG’s Rector, and the State Secretary of Tourism, Fernando Olivera Rocha.

Speaker Gto allows all students to join exchange and mobility programs, in order to actively integrate them into the tourism industry activity.

The training program integrates the following 6 modules:

  • Touristic routes and circuits
  • Experiences
  • Art, culture and education
  • Regional and International gastronomy
  • Travel tips

As part of the program, the students who approve this training, will visit the most important tourist attractions in the state with the purpose of becoming experts (speakers), so they can make a public presentation about those destinations in foreign Universities where they will be studying abroad, for state promotion.

“These young people will represent their country, state and city in student communities abroad, and they will help to position Guanajuato as ‘El Destino Cultural de México‘ (the Cultural Destination of Mexico) among their classmates and professors,” said Olivera Rocha.

Every year, about 110 students from the University of Guanajuato participate in the national and international exchange program and 150 students come to our state from foreign universities.
