Industry experts and researchers will meet in El Paso to discuss opportunities and challenges for manufacturers in the U.S. and Mexico at a conference sponsored by the El Paso Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
“A decade ago, experts said China’s industrial prowess would rule global manufacturing, but that hasn’t been the case”, said Roberto Coronado, assistant Vice President in charge of the Dallas Fed’s El Paso Branch. “Participants at this conference will discuss innovations that have kept the U.S. and Mexico competitive in manufacturing.” Conference panels will cover the current economic landscape for manufacturing in North America, automotive manufacturing, aerospace and medical manufacturing, and manufacturing along the U.S.–Mexico border. Panelists will focus on trends including manufacturing clusters, next-shoring, just-in-time inventory and Mexico’s transition to high-skilled manufacturing. They also will discuss how Mexico’s energy reforms might benefit manufacturers.
