What is the Index in Mexico?
Index is a private body dedicated to represent the interests and needs of maquiladoras and manufacturer exporting companies in Mexico.
“Organisms like Index are a very important tool for manufacturing enterprises in Mexico, as we are always trying to get consultancies in order to export products abroad in an easy manner and it is great to have an institution like Index to help us doing this”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a manufacturing company in Mexico.
Index represents an 80% total of the labor force of the exporting industry, which is more than 2,250,000 workers in total, who are employed in more than 1,200 exporting enterprises in more than 20 different cities in Mexico.
This shows the importance of the manufacturer industry and exporting companies for Mexico’s economy, as these enterprises create many new job sources for Mexicans, generating profits and attracting new foreign direct invest, but there are some other factors to consider maquiladoras’ industry as one of the most important for the country: it promotes the exporting Mexican industry, create development opportunities with responsibility and integrity, and collaborates with the authorities to have exportations in rule as well as promotes the employee training.
The Index national representation is supported by the local and regional representation through maquiladoras and manufacturing companies, answering to the constant modifications about the Mexican laws at its different levels, by solving any legal uncertainty for enterprises in this sector, which helps them saving operation costs.
“Index has developed their function by working hard to make sure the manufacturing and exporting companies know the regulation in productive and administrative aspects and to advise if they are complying correctly with their obligations with the Mexican government, which is of great help for enterprises like Grupo Denim to have an organization like this in Mexico that comes with information and solutions of the different topics that we are concerned about”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
