TIJUANA – According to Confederación Patronal de la República Mexicana (Coparmex) in Tijuana, at least 52% of the works in the city are assigned to construction companies from other states in the country.

The president of Cámara Mexicana de la Industria de la Construcción (CMIC) Tijuana delegation, Gabriel Valenzuela Moreno, mentioned that local governments should make it easier for the builders of the entity, as they have enough capacity to deal with projects that are executed in the state.

Valenzuela Moreno, warned that the requirement of the agency is that the authorities give preference to local companies in the allocation of public works, in addition to better management and more transparency in the scheme of Asociaciones Público-Privadas (APP).

The executive mentioned as well that since the last legislation, builders have been struggling to modify the public works law, in order to obtain advantage for local companies, considering unfair that foreign companies that don't pay taxes in the region get the works.

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.
