According to Jose Yarahuan Galindo, President of INDEX Juarez, the maquiladora industry will start 2017 with plenty of job offers, thus regaining the terrain lost after the crisis from 2008-2009. 189,000 jobs were lost due to the global recession and the insecurity in Ciudad Juarez, but now there are 270,000 jobs and there were roughly 45,000 to 50,000 openings during 2016. These numbers represent recovery, while looking for the greatest benefits for people from this sector, especially during this new New Year.
