This year the maquila sector in the state of Yucatan plans to generate at least 8000 new jobs, assured the National Chamber of the Clothing Industry (CANAIVE) of the state and the Association of Export Maquiladoras of Yucatan (INDEX) .
According to the newspaper Milenio, Pedro Góngora Medina, leader of the CANAIVE of Yucatán, said that the generation of new jobs in the state responds to the arrival of new foreign companies in the textile industry, such as one of Belgian origin that will start operations in Valladolid, Yuc.
Góngora Medina said that last year was historic for the clothing industry in Yucatan, as it achieved a growth of 9% and a generation of more than 15,000 jobs.
For its part, the leader of the Index-Yucatan, Luis Felipe López Alonso, stressed that this year the maquiladoras will hire over 2,000 workers to fulfill orders.
Despite the creation of new jobsl, this year the clothes manufacturing industry in Yucatan also faces a complicated panorama with inflation and the increase in fuel prices such as LP gas and gasoline. Góngora Medina stated that clothing prices in Yucatan could increase up to 10% in the first quarter of 2018.
If there is no stability in inflation, the sector of production in the state should make adjustments in their prices immediately.
The textile industry of Yucatan specializes in the manufacture of the famous guayaberas and denim products. Companies like INDITEX or VF Corp have been operating for several year in the Yucatan.
