Traveling from my hotel near the Monument of the Angel to Polanco, I noticed a 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 in 2016 was 14.2% higher than in 2015.”


The same day as the AMPI inauguration, The International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) held its Annual General Meeting. Silvia Elias from Puerto Vallarta was installed as President of the Mexico Section.
