Small Business Fair Put on Hold

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 13 October, 2011

(Acapulco, AN 11 October) The president of the National Chamber of Commerce of Manufacturing Industries (Canacintra), Pascual Romero García, announced yesterday that the annual Small and Medium Business Fair for 2011 will be “suspended” until further notice. It was to open in Acapulco at the end of this month, as usual. The reason given was that the state government, which usually foots half of the budget for the event, was unable to come up with the funds. The other half comes from federal sources. In spite of this, the president of Canacintra mentioned that an evangelical Christian group has planned a small- and medium-enterprise fair for this coming weekend, in which vendors and customers will be able to participate. José Arzate Silva, president of Acapulco’s Alliance of Evangelical Ministries (AME Acapulco), said that in this somewhat scaled-down fair over 100 businesses from all over Mexico will participate, and 15 will come from the United States.
