Companies show interest in property that Ford returned to San Luis Potosi government
Just a few days after Mexico, the United States and Canada reached a new trade agreement, some companies showed interested in settling in the property that Ford returned to the government of San Luis Potosi, revealed the head of the state’s Economic Development Secretariat (Sedeco), Gustavo Puente Orozco, who added that they seek to accommodate a project from a world class company.
“There is the possibility of attracting a large investment,” the official said to local media during a conference. “We must be patient. We have to wait until December when the new federal government takes over to work hand in hand with them to promote that land. We must look for a world-class project,” he added.
It was almost two years ago that Ford Motor Company decided to reverse its plan to install an assembly plant in San Luis Potosi. In addition to paying a millionaire compensation, the Dearborn automaker also returned to the state a 280-hectare land that had been donated.
The official said that the property is fully equipped, it has water supply, electric power and a natural gas pipeline. It lacks of a railroad spur line, but “it can be done in case the company that arrives requests it,” he said.
