During a meeting with Rosario Robles, Mexico's Minister of Social Development, Governors of Mexican states of Tamaulipas, Edigio Torre Cantu and Nayarit, Roberto Sadoval Castañeda signed agreements in social development policies.

The meeting was held in Mexico City with officials of Tamaulipas and Nayarit States, where the Minister of Social Development, Rosario Robles Berlanga, reiterated its conviction that Mexico would be incomplete without the participation of states in the construction of the new social policy as an area shared responsibility.

She emphasized that with this agreement, resources for social development will be transparent, programs such as Oportunidades, Priority Areas, 3 x 1 Migrant, Senior Pension, Life Insurance for heads of households will be priority.

"The National Crusade Against Hunger (Sin Hambre), for its operational and institutional complexity, comprehensive nature and territorial vision, can only be done with the convergence of efforts, resources and visions of the three levels of government."

In his speech, the Governor of Tamaulipas, Egidio Torre Cantu, said that the Crusade Against Hunger is a priority in the three municipalities of Altamira, Matamoros and Reynosa, where 45,504 people live in extreme poverty and food shortages.

Meanwhile, the governor of Nayarit, Roberto Sandoval Castañeda, said that in the first stage, the Crusade will serve 15,000 people in the municipality of El Nayar, mostly belonging to the indigenous peoples of Cora and Huichol, with concentrations of greater social deficits.
