JALISCO IN MEXICO SEEKS INDIA’S HELP FOR HIGH MANUFACTURING CAPABILITIES, SAYS ITS MINISTER
 

State of Jalisco in Mexico, Minister in charge of Innovation, Science and Technology, Mr. Jaime Reyes on Friday sought India’s support to help it negotiate trajectory of high manufacturing to further transform the state as it has abandoned the path of cheap manufacturing.
 

Addressing a Conference on ‘Smart Cities in India: Steering Urbanisation Growth’ under aegis of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here today, the Minister also sought India’s support for his state’s digital and internet transformation , arguing that this sort of cooperation would reduce the distance factor between India and Mexico.
 

“Mexico as such has given up its preference to no longer indulge in producing cheaper products and articles with cheap labour long back and it would prefer to forge manufacturing ties with India that aim at generating high quality products to transform Mexico’s manufacturing with its support of technology”, he said.
 

“80% of our exports are destined for United States of America and in case if its economy is not progressing, the country’s export assignments suffer and it is because of this reason that Mexico has begun to increase its relationship with Canada and other such geographies for increased trade and commercial ties and in Asia, India is one such country to which Mexico would want to broad base its economic engagements in areas of high manufacturing, digital and internet segment including electronics and other such areas”, emphasised the Minister.
 

Country Representative & Lead Smart Cities, US Trade and Development Agency, Ms. Mehnaz Ansari who also spoke on the occasion reiterated the commitment of US trade and development agency to transform the cities of Allahabad, Ajmer and Vishakapatnam that have been identified by the Government of India to convert them in to Smart Cities through US trade and development agency help in terms of offering its help for their re-designing.
 

Among other who participated in the conference comprised Vice President, PHD Chamber, Mr. Anil Khaitan ; Chairman, Raods, Ports & other Infrastructure, PHD Chamber, Mr. Ashish wig and its Director, Dr. Ranjeet Mehta.
