The Mexico-Brazil relationship is seen as a geat opportunity for commercial exchange in the aerospace industry.

The development of this sector in Querétaro is seen as a potential business and supply link between both nations, said the president of the Mexico-Brazil Chamber (Camebra), Miguel Ruiz Luna.

He explained that there are about 100 companies in the aerospace industry installed in Brazil, that Mexican firms, including those in Queretaro, have areas of opportunity that have not been developed.

“There are almost 100 companies that import products from different parts of the world and Mexico is currently not participating. Then we believe that it is a very good moment for the Mexican Aerospace Cluster (Querétaro), to have more active presence in Brazil.” he said.

The aerocluster is the first of its kind with which the Camebra has an approach to participate in the Aerospace Meetings, which will take place in Brazil. Meetings are also planned with the clusters of Monterrey, Ciudad Juárez and Baja California, in order to encourage the participation of suppliers from the national aeronautical sector.

Aerospace Meetings
As part of the Aerospace Meetings 2018, an aerospace delegation of Mexican companies and organizations is expected in São Paulo and São José dos Campos, Brazil,.

The mission is planned to take place on June 16 to 24, 2018. It is estimated that between 15 and 18 companies or Mexican educational institutions will participate.

The mission is developed with the purpose of promoting exports of suppliers installed in Mexico to Brazil, as well as to generate strategic alliances to attract technology and alternative sources of supply.

The president of the Camebra said that he is also planning to attract investors for OEM and Tier 1 projects, in addition to identifying new developments in commercial, military and space aviation, as well as support systems and air transportation.

Ruiz Luna emphasized that the Brazilian aerospace industry is the main one in the southern hemisphere, which recent development contributes to the global supply chain.

The state of São Paulo is the largest aerospace hub in Latin America, home to São José dos Campos, a region with 100 aircraft manufacturers, where the Aeronautical Cluster is located.

At the Aerospace Meetings 2018, the participation of 300 companies is expected, representing 25 countries and 600 delegations, with the expectation of generating 6,000 business meetings.

Miguel Ruiz Luna indicated that Mexico is a strong consumer of Embraer products (Brazilian manufacturer) -of commercial aviation, air force and executive jets- that require services, spare parts and maintenance, fact that opens a huge window of opporunity for Mexico (and Querétaro) to expand binational business opportunities.

Mexico, he said, is the sixth largest provider of aeronautical products in the United States with the fourth largest private jet fleet in the world, a point that makes it a world-class supplier and buyer of parts, services and finished products for the aerospace industry.

The director of Aeroclúster de Querétaro, Antonio Velázquez Solís, explained that through these meetings it is possible to improve the supply chains of Queretaro firms, as well as to increase the collaboration between companies, institutions, research centers and Brazilian government agencies.

For the current year, the Queretaro aerospace industry projects supply needs of 28.2 million dollars, 50.8% above 18.7 million dollars recorded in 2017, according to Aeroclúster de Querétaro, which currently features 53 members, of which 25 are aerospace companies.
