Mexico and France reinforce an aerospace alliance


TIJUANA  —  In order to strengthen the relationship between the federative entities of the country and France in the aerospace industry, a collaboration agreement was signed between the Franco-Mexican Chamber of Commerce (CCFM) and the Mexican Federation of Aerospace Industries (Femia).

The main goal is to analyze the objectives and scope proposed in the Femia-CCFM collaboration agreement, as well as the projects that are already underway such as Centro de Innovación y Diseño in Baja California.

Regarding said innovation center, Fernando Jaime Arzate, director of bonding of the Franco-Mexican Chamber of Commerce, explained that it is a space in which companies and entrepreneurs will access technology and services from Industry 4.0 to increase their innovation capabilities in areas of design, engineering and digital manufacturing.

The total investment of the center, which will be located in the technological consortium of Tijuana, amounts to US$1.2 million, of which US$1 million were contributed by Secretaría de Economía Federal; the importance of locating in Baja California is that the entity concentrates the largest number of companies in the aerospace sector.

He noted that some of those involved in this project, which was planned for nearly two years, are Secretaría de Desarrollo Económico de Baja California and State government, Confederación de Cámaras Industriales and educational institutions such as Universidad Tecnológica de Tijuana, among others.
