A city within another city

The mayor of Apaseo el Grande, Gonzalo Gonzalez Centeno, said that the Japanese company did not make any request for tax exemption. When he was questioned if they will have benefits in terms of taxes or subsidies, he assured they will pay.

According to Adrián Peña Miranda, General Director of Guanajuato’s Housing Commission (Coveg) and a member of the strategic team that will be responsible for shaping a harmonious arrival of Toyota to Apaseo el Grande, something incredible is going to happen in the state: a new city within another city.

In an interview with Sol de León, the state official stressed that Guanajuato, given the magnitude of this project, created a team that attended the issue and supported Apaseo el Grande in the transition.

"The Governor was very concerned about the impact that Toyota will have on Apaseo el Grande;" With this in mind, he then offered to develop a special plan that included Apaseo el Grande, Apaseo el Alto, Celaya and other nearby municipalities, for which the Planning Institute of Guanajuato (Iplaneg) and the Coveg, will internally manage the issue because the construction of thousands of houses was coming without any order and that had to be controlled”.
