  • Juarez lost 10 maquilas in 2011

    Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua.- During 2011 Ciudad Juarez lost 10 maquiladora plants, which accounts for one third of maquilas closed throughout Mexico, according to the Mexican Statistics Agency, Instituto Nacional de Estadistica Geografia e Informatica (INEGI). Juarez, once known as the Capital of Maquiladoras, has been left behind by this industry; for example, while employment in Chihuahua City grew 23.5%, the increase in Ciudad Juarez was barely 2.41%, and throughout Mexico it was 4.11%. According to data from INEGI, in December 2010 Ciudad Juarez had 332 maquiladora plants, and by December 2011 the number of this type of companies operating here dropped to 322. Throughout Mexico only 29 plants were lost, which means that one third of maquilas closed were in Juarez.
