Around 26 maquiladora plants here have expansion plans for this fiscal year, in spite of the jobs lost last June, according to Claudia Troitiño de Gonzalez, Chairwoman of Juarez Maquiladoras Association, Asociacion de Maquiladoras-Index Juarez, who further pointed-out that this summer none of the traditional “shutdowns” have taken place.

She said that according to information held by the Association, the jobs “lost” last month were due to normal rotation in companies from the sector, but this time the vacancies were not filled, therefore posting a drop in employment.

She informed that the Association’s records show the intention of some plants to expand their operations in this border city, even if she did acknowledge that the local industry is waiting to see the behavior of international markets to make decisions and increase production.
