Enrique Alfaro Ramírez, Governor of Jalisco, commented that the entity is laying the foundations to become the main engine for the Mexican economy. And in the last year, it was positioned as the second place in the recovery of jobs throughout the country, in addition to having doubled foreign direct investment compared to the previous year.

Given these two new investments, the president celebrated the confidence that Jabil and Intel have in Jalisco, for which he highlighted the importance of relaunching the economy after the health contingency. In addition, with these new projects, a work route will be made for the recruitment issue with the support of local universities.
