Mexico, May 16 (Notimex).- In the next 20 years Mexico could generate an export market in the aeronautical industry of 300 billion dollars and position itself as an important player, as it is in the automotive sector.
The president of the Executive Council of Global Companies, Frédéric Garcia, said that for this the country must "wear the batteries" and work on a strategy for the future, where few actors aspire to be leaders, such as Europe, the United States, Brazil, Canada, China and Russia.
Mexico today is the fourth world exporter for the automotive industry and an important supplier for the aeronautical sector, "why not imagine that the country can build synergies and perspectives to be recognized in the world as the main supplier for aircraft interiors?"he said.
During his participation in the event Trends and Perspectives of the Aerospace Sector in Mexico, he said that the previous thing would happen because in that period there will be a demand for more planes with more than one hundred seats, which is equivalent to five billion dollars.
Therefore, the country would double its participation worldwide in the industrial supply, which is currently 5.0 percent.
He mentioned that nowadays it is very unlikely that Mexico will become a world leader in the production of engines, despite the fact that it manufactures part of these, but it could be recognized as the leader in aircraft interiors, equivalent to 15 percent of the total value of aircraft.
Therefore, he considered necessary to make the right decisions on the subject, especially in the face of the change of government that the country will experience in a few weeks.
"We have met with the three main candidates and none of them is clear about the vision for this sector, although in the last 15 years it has been the one that has grown the most. If they do not have it, the industry should help them," he said.
Frédéric Garcia considered that the signing of the agreement with Europe and the TPP 11 will be key to reach the aforementioned export figure.
"It is time to put on the table, along with suppliers, companies and academies, a project for the transition teams that will enter from July 2. It is time to nurture ideas and implementation plans," he said.
Similarly, he said that it is necessary to promote more to small and medium enterprises, as well as having more trained personnel and working on innovation.
