Canada reinforces investment in Coahuila Saltillo.- Some Canadian companies established in Mexico are increasing their installed capacity, specifically those found in Coahuila, Chihuahua and Nuevo Leon; in Coahuila there are at least three. Even if he would not provide any names or the amounts to be invested, Francois Lafond, Canada’s General Consul in Monterrey, said that there are many projects to increase capacity in plants already established here, and in some cases the increase could reach 50%. Also, when speaking about lack of safety, he said that there is some perception with certain influence but that, on the other hand, in spite of lack of safety there is a significant increase in economic growth. “If it were a decisive factor, we would be seeing a decrease in economic growth, which is not the case. There are therefore two realities to have a very balanced vision of what is happening”, he said.
