Mexico is not a country that guarantees conditions that promote R&D investment. Even the Mexican government reduces budget for these activities. These conditions must be driven by private companies as part of their corporate social responsibility activities and commitment with Mexico. Mitsubishi Electric Automation has Mitsubishi University, a program that provides training for customers around the world. The content learned by Mexican workers certifies them according to Mexican regulations. It is also the same content that a worker in Japan or the US learns. Due to the extension and diversity in Mexico, we decided to create training centers where Mitsubishi Electric’s business partners provide training and knowledge to customers on behalf of Mitsubishi Electric. By the end of 2018, we will also be launching a scholarship program for public university students where they can receive training at our facilities.
