Due to USMCA’s strict regional content requirements, the automotive industry is looking forward to developing new alliances in the Mexican market. To address this, INA, along with the government of Queretaro, launched the International Automotive Industry Supply Summit Mexico 2023, which aims to gather companies from across the automotive sector’s value chain to create new business, offering more than 600 purchasing opportunities.
The event will take place from May 31, 2023, to June 1, 2023, at the Queretaro Congress Center. Organizers stressed that owing to the opportunities offered by the sector in North America, the value of transactions could score over US$32.9 billion per year, creating a sizable opportunity for guests looking for new business.
Organizers promised that more than 12 countries and 26 Mexican states would attend the event, which represents US$3.1 billion worth of business opportunities owing to the presence of OEMs, Tier 1 and 2 suppliers, as well as raw materials, processes and services providers. “The largest B2B business meeting in Mexico will take place, involving more than 80 major buyers, including car manufacturers and Tier 1 companies such as Stellantis, Kia, Ford, BMW, Honda, Bosch, BRP, Continental, ZF, BorgWarner, Kenworth, John Deere, Martinrea, Eaton, Foxconn, Caterpillar, Marelli, Visteon, Vitro, Brose Rassini, Hitachi, Magna, Valeo and Tremec, among other companies,” reads the organizers' invitation.
