Coahuila is reinforcing its foreign economic promotion policy in 2018. State authorities have expectations to secure more than 120 investment projects over the next two years. Out of the total number of estimated projects for the next 24 months, 18 are likely to start just during the first trimester this year. Roughly US$1.2 billion are going to be invested for these 120 new projects, bringing along the creation of approximately 30,000 direct jobs and nearly 40,000 indirect jobs, thus benefiting the five regions in the State.

Avant Energy announced an upcoming US$200 million investment for a network of terminals to supply refined oil products from the Port of Altamira, Tamaulipas, to the Bajio region. This network, named Altamira-Bajio Oil Supply  (Supera), is going to feature two terminals initially, one for sea and one for land, which are going to be developed simultaneously, to support fuel imports from the US. Avant Energy is a Mexican Corporation focused on developing, building and operating energy infrastructure for the oil,  natural gas, refined products and electric energy sectors. For this development, the Company is relying on two strategic partners: the US logistics group Savage Companies (Savage), to operate the terminals; and the rail road operator, Kansas City Southern Mexico (KCSM).

Global parcel Firm UPS has informed that it is going to develop a new operations center in El Paso through "strategic cross-border investment", with the objective of providing a better service to the manufacturing industry in Nuevo Mexico, Texas and part of the North of Mexico. The Company, based in Atlanta, Georgia, released a press statement to inform that the facilities, that were allocated a US$41 million investment, are going to have an extension of 14,240 square meters. This space is going to provide new processing capacity for the UPS global logistics network, which serves the automotive, electronic, home appliance and machinery industries.

Portugal's Ambassador in Mexico, Jorge Roza de Oliveira, visited Nuevo Leon to map out opportunities and become familiar with the business environment the state offers, with the purpose of exploring future investment projects for strategic sectors. Portuguese companies like Recicla 2000, Hidraulica and WLP Transitarios, are interested on identifying growth or commerce opportunities in the State, and hence have been conducting interviews with both providers and potential clients. Nuevo Leon is receiving product imports from Portugal worth roughly US$23.2 million, while exports add up to US$ 2.9 million, according to records from the 2017 January-October period, which supports the affirmation that there are huge growth opportunities awaiting in the region.

North American Corporation Honeywell owns a manufacturing plant in Baja California, considered one of the most modern facilities in the world out of the many locations of this Firm, thanks to its technological capacities for supporting the aeronautic industry. The production unit, established in Mexicali, has a Wind Tunnel ready to perform tests about the effects of the wind on different materials. This technological resource, which started operating last year, called for a US$150 million investment from the Firm.
