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.”

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey presented a 2020 budget proposal of US$700,000, which would improve refrigerated capacity at international customs between Sonora and Arizona to increase international trade.

In social networks, the president of Arizona said that "Arizona is open to business, and we have investment proposals to bring more trade through the Mariposa checkpoint in Nogales.

The Governor's Office said that the expenses would attract new imports to the international port, and the Fresh Produce Association of the Americas (FPAA) based in Nogales.

The group of investors said in a statement that the investment would help the state to add jobs and increase its tax base.

FPAA president, Lance Jungmeyer, assured last fall to supervisors in Santa Cruz County, Arizona, that 4 prefabricated cold storage units would cost between US$800,000 and US$1 million.

CIUDAD OBREGÓN – 55 investment projects are being negotiated by authorities of Secretaría de Desarrollo Económico of the State of Sonora for this 2019, although it is unknown how many of these plans are projected for the south of the State.

Leonardo Ciscomani Freaner, undersecretary of Desarrollo Económico of the State, estimated that at least between 12 and 15 of the projects will be completed, although it is unknown for which area of the entity it will be.

"We are working very hard to achieve the investment, which correspond to areas such as space, electronics and mining, these are strategic areas of the State of Sonora," he added.

The advantages that the 55 prospects see in the state are: proximity to the United States and the presence of the port of Guaymas, which would facilitate the exit of various products by sea, and that despite the statistics Sonora continues to be a safe state for investment.
