For the second time in AMPI’s (Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals) 60 year history, a female has been installed as President.  Beatriz Gamboa Lago was installed recently at a ceremony in the Mexico City’s                                                  spectacular Soumayo Museum. Along with the new President and Vice President,                   20 members of the new Advisory Council took the oath of office. Alelejandor Kuri Pheres from Mexico City is the new Vice President.

Witnessing the event were members of the association who came from across the county to be there, local dignitaries and politicians from three levels of government. The mayor of Merida, Beatriz’s home town of Beatriz was among those on the podium along with other government representatives.

Traveling from my hotel near the   Monument of the Angel to Polanco, I noticed the horizon dotted with building cranes. During his comments the Director of Urban Planning for Mexico City shed some light on the situation. He said,” Construction activity in 2016 was 14.2% higher than in 2015.

On the same day, The International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) held its annual meeting. Silvia Elias from Puerto Vallarta took the chair as the new President of that organization.
