He said that without a doubt it has been a good year for the maquiladoras, the industry has been growing steadily for more than five years, no plants closed this year and some were opened, such as Leoni, which generated more jobs.
He pointed out that in 2019 there are several companies with foreign capital that want to open their maquiladora plants in Yucatan, three of the are confirmed, they just need to decide the exact geographic spot.
“The only thing they want in 2019 is to lower the electric power rates that impact the maquiladoras; a request that all the Yucatecan private initiative is asking for, a reduction on the power tariffs. All companies are relying on the new Federal Government, so the productivity of this industry does not decrease “, pointed out.
