Governor Carlos Lozano de la Torre was informed that the volume produced by manufacturing industry in Aguascalientes has grown 56% in the last 10 years, maintaining the State as second in Mexico in growth on this field as of last May.

The above was taken from the report prepared based on the Monthly Industrial Survey made by the Mexican Statistics Agency, Instituto Nacional de Estadistica y Geografia (INEGI), which includes information about production, exports through maquiladoras and the behavior of the several elements involved in manufacturing production in Mexico.

On this issue, Governor Lozano pointed out that Aguascalientes’ main strength lays on its specialized and committed human capital since, he said, it has been the workers’ daily effort that has made Aguascalientes stand out for its manufacturing industry in Mexico.

The Governor further said that the stable environment propitiated at the State has provided for the consolidation of manufacturing establishments, particularly from the automotive industry, which has the largest share of local production.

Easu Garza de Vega, Minister of Economic Development, informed that last May Aguascalientes’ manufacturing industry’s production volume went up 156.5%, raking second in Mexico in growth of production volume in such month.

Minister Garza explained that the main influence on manufacturing production at the State is exerted by the automotive industry, and that between January and May 2013 the Mexican Association of Automotive Industry, Asociacion Mexicana de la Industria Automotriz (AMIA), reported that Nissan Mexicana’s production was first with 290,356 units, of which 50% were assembled at the State.
