Puebla to create innovation center for the automotive sector

PUEBLA –  The Confederation of Industrial Chambers of the United Mexican States (CONCAMIN) and the Municipal Government of Puebla signed a Collaboration Agreement that will allow the creation of an industrial innovation center for the automotive sector.

Thanks to this strategic alliance, it will be possible to design and promote actions aimed at increasing the production of OEM companies, (Tier 1, 2 and 3) supplier companies, as well as micro, small and medium enterprises (MiPyME’s) in the industrial sector.

The Framework Collaboration Agreement aims to establish the bases for the parties to exchange their knowledge, skills, experiences and efforts to strengthen the value chains of the industrial sector of the automotive industry based in the city of Puebla.
