The SCT (Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes, in Spanish), with the support of the Embassy of Mexico in the United Kingdom, incorporated Puerto Vallarta’s API and other high-level Mexican ports to the Declaration of the Members of the Port Authorities Roundtable (PAR), which was led in the Republic of Singapore.

Through a videoconference called by the maritime and port authority of the Asian country, an updated list of countries whose ports have declared their support to remain open and collaborate closely, sharing best practices and applying the corresponding sanitary measures, was announced.

Thus, Mexico was added to the list of 33 countries that guarantee operations at their ports without interruption.

Additionally, our country shared best practices with the rest of the nations including the Humanitarian Bridges Program, which has been a success due to the seriousness, responsibility and solidarity with which it has been implemented, considering that from March to May 2020, our port has allowed the arrival of 15 cruise ships to disembark 1,836 people from different nationalities (between passengers and crew), who, after complying with the health protocols, were able to return to their country of origin through the Puerto Vallarta International Airport.

During the meeting, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) announced that more than 80 percent of goods, worldwide, are transported by sea.

In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
