Claudia Sheinbaum emphasized the importance of this initiative that has helped to modernize construction activities as part of an open and transparent government.
Sheinbaum also recognized Marina del Pilar for being a governor who prioritizes the needs of her people who is also open to communicate efficiently with other governments and institutions to boost projects to benefit everyone. She also said that dialogue between Baja California and Mexico City will be strengthened in the next few months.

They also expressed a willingness to follow-up on communication to improve the efficiency of coordinated actions in all areas of their respective administrations.
Meanwhile, as part of her visit to Mexico City, Marina del Pilar met with María Luisa Albores, head of the Secretariat of the Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT), with whom she agreed on a coordinated agenda to safeguard the integrity of the state’s flora and fauna, as well as the ecosystems and general natural resources.
“We have carried out very productive dialogue as we keep looking for a way to join efforts for projects that transform Baja California, always prioritizing taking care of the environment and its people,” Marina del Pilar stated on social media.
