QUERETARO – During the meeting between the governor of Queretaro, Mauricio Kuri Gonzalez, and the president of the Association of Haciendas and Vineyards of the municipality of El Marques, Jose Niembro Calzada, it was highlighted that the wine industry generates 400 direct jobs and 900 indirect jobs in the state.
Kuri Gonzalez recognized all the people who make up the sector as generators of employment and prestige in the agro-industrial sector of the entity, as well as for their contributions to the Art, Cheese and Wine route.
“I am convinced that we live in a spectacular place, a place that is worth taking care of,” said the state president.
