Within the framework of the event, the Governor promised to carry out all the necessary steps and actions for the construction of a new international bridge in Nuevo Laredo.
“On the part of the Tamaulipas government, we are going to carry out all the necessary steps and actions to ensure that a new bridge can be built in Nuevo Laredo. It is about giving you the necessary instruments to be more competitive, attract more investment, develop more job generation and wealth. I am convinced that it is possible and that there are many interesting sectors,” said the governor.
