President López Obrador reported that by June 2024 all the artisan roads in Oaxaca will be ready. So far, 3,117 km of such roads have been completed and the goal is to conclude the administration’s term in office with 4,144 km in operation. He commented that in previous presidential administrations, the population was sidelined, based on the argument that they lacked the capacity to build such roads, however, he said: “they are a work of art.”
