Jaime Parada Avila, director of the Innovation and Technology Transfer Institute in Nuevo Leon,  made a petition to local Congress to consider funding for science and technology in the review of the project for the plan of income and expenses of Nuevo Leon. On the other hand, Fernando Turner Davila, Secretary of Economy and Labor in the State, advised that his office is going to boost small and medium (SME) technology businesses, by reactivating State funding programs, such as the Combined Fund for Scientific and Technological Development of the   National Council of Science and Technology (Conacyt) and the Nuevo Leon Fund for Innovation (Fonlin).
