But it was our team that launched it, 12 or 13 years ago, when with the governor of the time Cobos put the issue on the agenda. After Julio Cobos there were no governors who took the lead to get ours back. Doing such a work takes a lot of effort, dreaming is easy, doing is more difficult.» In this note:
