Tlaxcala, Tlax., The federal government began the implementation of a federalization model of the health system to integrate state hospitals into the IMSS-Wellness system, with care for the general population. Yesterday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador signed with the governor of Tlaxcala, Lorena Cuéllar, the agreement for its application. Along with Nayarit, they are the first states where it will land.
In addition, the president inaugurated two branches of the Banco del Bienestar in Tlaxcala as part of the 250 that began operations on Thursday.
In the morning, he offered his daily press conference in this entity, in which he ratified that Tlaxcala will always have the support of its government, because there is
a relationship of more than 30 years of struggle and, every time I was a candidate, several or a few times, always, despite the regrets, here we won. Regarding the governor, he added that
he has been fighting for a long time and we are sure that he will have a good government.
The Secretary of Health, Jorge Alcocer, explained that the federalization of this sector includes channeling the necessary resources for hiring and regularizing medical and nursing personnel, infrastructure, equipment and distribution of medicines.
For the diagnosis, since last year visits have been made to 216 health centers and 13 hospitals in the state, explained the general director of the IMSS, Zoé Robledo.
Banamex, for Mexicans
In the context of the inauguration of the Banco del Bienestar branches in Tlaxcala, President López Obrador referred to the sale of Banamex announced by Citigroup and endorsed five recommendations in this regard.
We no longer want, with all due respect I also say it, that the banks are in the hands of foreigners. I’m not a chauvinist, we have to open up to the world, but it’s time for Mexican businessmen and investors to manage these banks, private banks. So, we want that, we would not be very much in favor of foreigners taking over Banamex againhe expressed.
This week, Ana Botín, president of the Spanish bank Santander, expressed the interest of the group she heads in participating in the Banamex sale process.
The Tabascan recalled that
That bank has a Mexican cultural heritage, pieces of art of great historical and cultural value that belong to the people of Mexico. All that cultural foundation has to remain in the country, we no longer want the looting of the cultural assets of the people of Mexico to continue..
At the same time, he urged that it be acquired by a company with financial support to protect savers, that it not have debts before the SAT and that the corresponding taxes be paid for the operation.
