Miguel Elizalde, CEO of Anpact, said that the heavy vehicle industry has a very important growth potential but it also faces complex challenges. 

"We are currently 35% below our sales potential, and this year, we face a complex context with new regulations, high theft incidence rate and an election year, which is likely to inhibit the growth of the domestic market,” Elizalde said.
