This happened during a meeting with the Governor of Guanajuato who ratified the commitment of investment and creation of jobs in Guanajuato, without affecting Mazda and/or Toyota projects in the United States of America.
“The new plant that Mazda and Toyota will be building in the United States does not affect investment and production in our country, this is something that gives us great confidence and obviously these are great news for a number of supplying companies” said governor Márquez.
The Governor wished success to the automotive project in North America and thanked the Japanese execuive for continuing with their investments in Guanajuato.
Chiharu Mizutani acknowledged the support of the State Government as an investment facilitator offering the massive creation of jobs, population development and boosting Guanajuato’s projection worldwide as a great place for doing business.
During the meeting, the businessman stressed that the goals in employment and investment have been exceeded and that Mazda’s suppliers in Mexico can be certain that this company will continue to grow in Guanajuato without affecting its production elsewhere.
By the end of Governor Miguel Márquez administration, Guanajuato will be the state with the largest production of vehicles in Mexico and would consolidate itself as the top automotive cluster in Latin America.
