Querétaro (Mexico), Jun 22 (EFE) .- The buoyant Mexican aerospace industry, the twelfth most important in the world, is consolidated in the center of the country with the first aerospace conference organized by the Aeroclúster de Querétaro, which seeks to strengthen companies, academia and government.
“We want to ensure that these aerospace conferences here in Querétaro are recognized at a global level, in the world aerospace sector, and this first conference is only the beginning,” the president of the cluster, Juan Carlos Corral, told Efe on Tuesday.
The “Querétaro Aerospace Conference” (QAC 2021) took place this Monday and Tuesday with the virtual presence of figures such as Ali Guarneros, Mexican aerospace engineer at NASA; José Luis Terreros, CEO of the Mexican company Space JLTZ, and Guillermo Echeverría, CEO of Adman Leku, a space manufacturing company from Querétaro.
It has also included representatives of international companies established in the state, such as Airbus and GE Aviation, the aeronautical branch of General Electric (GE).
“The fundamental objective is to talk about cutting-edge issues, not only about the companies’ products and services, for which there are already other forums and fairs in Mexico and around the world,” Corral mentioned.
INDUSTRY IN EVOLUTION
The Mexican national sector has grown an average of 14% annually in the last decade, reaching exports worth 9.7 billion dollars in 2019, according to the Mexican Federation of the Aerospace Industry (FEMIA).
The Ministry of Economy (SE) has projected that, by 2025, this industry will be ranked as the tenth most important in the world with more than 400 companies in the country, 110,000 jobs and 12,000 million dollars of exports, according to the FEMIA.
“The industry has evolved a lot in recent years,” said Corral, who is also the CEO of ITP Aero in Mexico, a company of Spanish origin that was one of the first in the industry to settle in the region more than 20 years ago.
