At least two industrial parks will arrive to the State of Guanajuato, with the objective of offering more spaces for the sectors of food, automotive, auto parts and the manufacturing sector in general.
Initially, the plan of the state government included the development of 7 industrial parks by 2018, but this figure will increase to 12, informed Guillermo Romero Pacheco, Head of the Ministry of Sustainable Economic Development (SDES).
These two new industrial parks will be located at the outskirts of the State's main corridor, integrated by the Municipalities of Leon, Silao, Irapuato, Salamanca and Celaya.
Another park will be established in the Municipality of San Luis de la Paz, in Northern Guanajuato, which is on the border with San Luis Potosi, where BMW and their main suppliers are settled.
The Municipality of Comonfort, which is on the border with San Miguel de Allende, Celaya and Apaseo el Grande, where Toyota plant will be located, could also have an industrial park.
