According to the president of the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra) in Mexicali, José Eugenio Lagarde Amaya, the Mexicali Supply Expo was a request from the entrepreneurs of the sector, who for 8 years have been participating. “What is sought in an essential way is to integrate the tractor companies, the large companies, with the medium-sized companies and local smaller companies here in Mexicali,” he said.
