Jalisco attracts two auto supplier projects, bids for assembly plant
According to Jalisco’s Secretary of Economic Development, Jose Palacios, soon will be announced the arrival of two suppliers of the automotive sector. Meanwhile, the state is competing for the installation of a new assembly plant from an automaker which is considering Mexico among other countries, the official said, but no further details were provided.
“There are two companies in the automotive industry that we are going to announce soon. They will keep coming. Also, there’s a project we are working on with an auto company, which is analyzing Mexico despite the uncertainty by the renegotiation of the NAFTA. We are in competition with other states and countries, hopefully we will get him to stay in Jalisco,” Palacios revealed in a press conference this week.
During the first half year, Jalisco reported US$ 512 million in Foreign Direct Investment, placing it the thirteenth position among the 32 states of the country.
