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.

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.
