Sea Turtles, Protected in Mexico

Seven out of eight of the world’s existing sea turtles nest on Mexican coasts. The Mexican government has undertaken a set of measures to protect these endangered species, as well as to increase their population levels.

The Ministry for Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fishing and Food (Secretaría de Agricultura, Ganadería, Desarrollo Rural, Pesca y Alimentación, or SAGARPA) has established measures for their protection, including the following:

  • Establishing a Temporary Zone of Refuge, in which interaction of fishing activities with sea turtles is minimized.
  • Commercial fishing activities in the designated area will be carried out exclusively in authorized fishing areas.
  • Recreational and sport fishing will only be allowed under the “Catch and Release” modality.
  • Fishing for domestic consumption will only be permitted with nets and manual lines which are utilized individually by the fisherman.
  • Among the additional measures undertaken to prevent interaction with sea turtles in fishing activities, it is noted that, in the case of accidental capture, the specimen must be liberated under adequate survival conditions.

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.
