According to Ossie Diaz, director of Operations of Grupo Tacna, the company managed to land seven new investments in Baja California that resulted in the creation of more than 1,500 new jobs and more than US$200 million in investments, all throughout 2018. Diaz pointed out that Grupo Tacna is ready to face 2019 and to reach at least 10,000 new jobs so as to consolidate as one of the largest employers in Baja California.
"Despite the uncertainty that the transition of the new government has caused, Grupo Tacna is focused on bringing more investments to the state, which will result in the creation of thousands of jobs," Diaz said.
On the other hand, he assured that everything is ready in order to employ hundreds of Central Americans, as long as Mexican authorities expedite immigration procedures and documents for them to legally work in the country.
Ossie Diaz, who also serves as Chairman of the Security Committee at Parque Industrial Baja Maq, will be jointly working with the Asociacion de Desarrollo Economico e Industrial de Tijuana (Deitac), a global investment promotion agency of which he is a part of, in order to attract new investments to the entity.
While Diaz didn’t give any names out; he said that, during the first three months of 2019, new investments in the medical and furniture sectors will be announced.
