For his part, the president of the National Network of Automotive Industry Clusters, Manuel Montoya Ortega, considered that the objective is to be more competitive, and that by forming this Industrial cluster that is not exclusively automotive it will allow them in the future to have a mass critical in order to consolidate an automotive cluster.
The most important thing, said Montoya Ortega, is to create this synergy between institutions, “we are going to increase the level of competitiveness, we will be able to integrate local companies, but we need specialized training with technical schools and train suppliers as we must comply with regional content established by the Agreement between Mexico, the United States and Canada (USMCA) ”.
