TAMAULIPAS – In the last year, the state of Tamaulipas has attracted US$18.3 billion in investment, which represents 82 projects that will generate 20,000 jobs.
The Secretary of Economy of Tamaulipas, Ninfa Cantú Deándar, highlighted that this figure is the result of the strategy to promote the state’s competitive advantages and strategic infrastructure.
As an example of this strategy, Cantú Deándar mentioned the recent Asia Business Mission, in which a delegation from the Ministry of Economy participated on behalf of Mexico and Tamaulipas in the China Latin America Summit in Beijing and the Importers Fair in Shanghai. In these activities, the delegation held meetings with businessmen interested in investing in the energy, battery, medical equipment, electromobility and sorghum industry sectors.
As a result of this agenda, a delegation of businessmen from China visited the Port of Altamira this week to discuss industrial investment projects with Governor Américo Villarreal Anaya.
The Secretary of Economy emphasized that this confirmed investment reflects the confidence of both the private sector and the productive sectors in the economic policy of the state government, characterized by a humanistic approach that seeks not only fair and sustainable economic development, but also the welfare of the population.
Since October of last year to date, domestic and foreign investment has been directed to strategic sectors such as Automotive, Electrical-Electronics, Chemical-Petrochemical, Aerospace, Logistics, Medical, Semiconductors and Food.
This diversified investment flow reaffirms the attractiveness of Tamaulipas for investors in these key sectors.
