The companies affiliated to the export maquiladora industry will make investments in Mexico, especially in the northwest side of the country for US$2,600 million, in the remainder of the year 2018, of which, US$400 million will come from Sonora, said the representative of Index in Sonora, Gerardo Vásquez.

This investment will make the export maquiladora industry reach the 3 million formal jobs registered in the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), which earn 2.6 daily minimum wages. This, in turn, sends a message of certainty to those who want to invest in Mexico, with the current and future federal government.

Sonora is one of Mexico’s states with the highest aerospace industry development. It has one of the leading aerospace manufacturing clusters, nationwide, in which more than 60 companies already belong. This has been able to generate more than 10,000 specialized jobs, according to Jorge Vidal Ahumada, Sonora's Secretary of Economy.

The other Mexican states that lead the sector are Chihuahua with 42 companies integrated to its cluster, Queretaro with 30 and Nuevo Leon with 28, according to official figures.

Vidal Ahumada highlights that the production in Sonora is of 12 aircrafts per month, which is the equivalent of 96 doors, emphasizing that "the intention is to bump production up to 14 aircrafts by the end of 2018, this means 112 doors per month and 1,500 aircraft pieces.”

The Tecnologico Nacional de Mexico (TecNM) carried out the inauguration of the first of the three laboratories that make up the Centro de Investigacion Tecnologica e Innovacion para el Sector Aeroespacial (CITISA).

The General Director of TecNM, Manuel Quintero Quintero, alongside Governor Claudia Pavlovich, led the ceremony and explained that Hermosillo is experiencing a historic moment with the opening of CITSA, as it will undoubtedly attract large investments from the aerospace sector.

Approximately US$2 million were invested on the first building that, as research lines, will offer Aeronautical Design, Propulsion Systems, Aeronautical Technology and High Technology Programs, benefiting around 2,000 young Mexicans.
