Jose Luis Gutierrez, from the Borderplex Bi-national Economic Alliance, an El Paso-based organization focused on promoting growth at the region, said that there are at least around 25 projects soon to land at the region.

He explained that investors from the above-mentioned countries, some of them with no operations in the Americas yet, want to establish at the region and are considering Ciudad Juarez as their “landing site”.

The companies, adding to 25 projects for the region, belong to the electronics, automotive, medical and even aerospace fields.

He pointed-out that, due to its manufacturing experience –including the assembly of heavy vehicles, Juarez has a strong position in the competition to attract investments.
