Mexico's Automotive Industry Expands

A few days ago, General Motors announced a major investment of five billion dollars to modernize the operations of its four manufacturing complexes in Mexico, doubling its production capacity. This is helping to drive the successful development of the automotive industry in the country.

Mexico is positioning itself as the seventh automotive producer in the world, and today, and it is the first producer in Latin America. The country has 700,000 workers in the automotive industry.

From January to November, vehicle production exceeded three million 11 thousand units, which implies an increase of 8.7% over the same period last year; and exports exceeded two million 447 thousand units, 8.2% higher than the same period last year.

These achievements cement the automotive and auto parts industries as pillars of Mexico’s economic development.
