Duarte anticipates the arrival of two assemblers
Chihuahua, Mexico.— The State of Chihuahua will receive investments for over US$3 billion in the next two years from Asian countries, including the establishment of two vehicles assemblers, to serve the domestic and US markets, Governor Cesar Duarte Jaquez informed.
According to Governor Duarte, one of these assemblers is Japanese and will produce light trucks to be sold in the United States.
In his first press conference after returning from his trip to Asia, Duarte Jaquez informed that negotiations with Korean, Chinese and Japanese companies will generate over 5,000 jobs in the short term and in the medium term the number of jobs generated by Asian capitals could exceed 10,000.
He said that Chihuahua has a name in Asia as a destination for investment, as well as for some of its farming and cattle products, such as chile, nuts and beef, in addition to the possible production and export of pork, since the State of Chihuahua is known as a swine disease “clean” site.
