The administration’s tourism policy is designed to strengthen the sector and turn Mexico into a world class destination through four guiding principles, namely, legislative and sectorial transformation; innovation and competitiveness; development and promotion; and sustainability and social well being.
President Pena Nieto said, “We will open Mexico to the world, and the world will visit Mexico. Tourism is a fundamental component of our economy and a key driver of national development.”
Tourism is responsible for close to nine percent of Mexico’s gross domestic product.
