June 23rd, 2011 by ejalbright

Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism was in Merida yesterday to announce that the federal government would be joining with the state of Yucatan to promote the Maya World in 2012. At some point in the next few days Yucatan Governor Ivonne Ortega Pacheco will join with Mexico President Felipe Calderon Hinojosa at Chichen Itza to announce a sweeping tourism promotion plan connected to the end of the Maya calendar in December 2012.

Tourism Secretary Gloria Guevara Manzo was in town to participate in “Feria TurĂ­stica del Mundo Maya” — “Tourism Fair of the Maya World.” She said the upcoming tourism promotion around 2012 would focus its attention on Maya sites such as Chichen Itza that visitors should know about to whet their appetite for information about the 5,000-year Maya calendar that comes to an end late next year.

“The Maya culture permits a connection between past and future, and is a major contribution to the world of the Mexican people,” she told reporters.
