“Everyday, more international companies are deciding to invest in Mexico“, President Peña Nieto said during the groundbreaking ceremony for the Heineken brewery in Chihuahua. He stated that his administration has fostered the necessary conditions for the development and growth of employment opportunities.
“Mexico is a trustworthy partner for investment. The country has strengths that are attractive to investors. The investments will generate employment and contribute to social and economic growth,” he said. “The only thing that will help the country improve is to create an optimal environment for investment. This will provide more opportunities for employment and higher wages.”
“Mexico offers a stable social and political framework which inspires trust“, Peña Nieto added. The objective of the reforms his administration has enacted are designed to foster economic growth.
The Mexican President praised Heineken for investing more than 7 billion pesos ($447 million USD) in the construction of its seventh brewery worldwide in Meoqui, Chihuahua. The construction will create an expected 2,000 temporary jobs. Once built, the brewery will hire 500 permanent employees and contribute to the local agricultural economy, with the harvesting of barley, rice and corn.
Five years after acquiring Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma, Heineken decided on Chihuahua for its brewery because of the state’s talented people, quality of water, geographic location and improved security of the region, said the Heineken general director Marc Busain. Mexico was chosen out of the 120 countries where Heineken is currently operating.
Earlier in the day, Peña Nieto received Italian Foreign Relations and International Cooperation Minister Paolo Gentiloni. They discussed the fourth meeting of the Binational Mexico-Italian Commission held at the offices of the Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE).
