The National Convention of Industrialists 2021, held in Tampico, Tamaulipas from October 13 to 15, successfully concluded in observance of the 80th anniversary of the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (CANACINTRA) National Headquarters.
The event was attended by 500 industrialists from all over the country, belonging to the 76 CANACINTRA delegations, who met to analyze in a coordinated way the challenges and opportunities for the industry in Mexico.
The inauguration of the event was held on October 14 at the Expo Tampico Convention Center and was led by Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca, Governor of the State of Tamaulipas; Jesús Antonio Nader Nasrallah, Mayor of Tampico and Enoch Castellanos Ferez, National President of CANACINTRA.
The convention program featured conferences, workshops, and panels of experts who spoke about the economy after COVID, challenges, and opportunities; value networks, as a competitive differential of the industry; energy market, among other topics. Alberto Sánchez Torres, President of CANACINTRA Mexicali, recognized the great promotional work that different States of the Republic have done, where the Bajío area stands out, which have managed to develop infrastructure and services to scale as an attractive city for investment and has raised the quality of life of its people.
“Unfortunately, and even though we don’t like to admit it, Baja California has lagged far behind those states; we have to work in coordination with the Government, the private initiative and civil society, if we want to compete and advance, otherwise, we will continue to lose competitiveness and quality of life,” said Sánchez Torres.
It is a turning-point moment for our region, we are facing a change of government, and with it comes the opportunity to refine the course and improve coordination strategies to move towards a better Baja California, which favors education, investment, and economic development as a fundamental axis to generate well-being and progress for all.
Finally, Alberto Sánchez Torres dedicated a special thanks to the vice presidents of the Board of Directors and chamber members, who accompanied him and were part of the delegation on behalf of the delegation from Canacintra Mexicali.
