The reshoring phenomenon might make Mexico the best option for some investments coming out from China in the coming years.

 
 

 

 

The moment of greatest manufacturing country is not successful in the past but in the future. In the coming years, the high labor productivity in the United States and trade integration between Mexico, the U.S. and Canada will make it cheaper to produce manufactured goods in North America than in China. The main advantage of Mexico, in addition to sharing the border with the economy having the largest manufacturing demand world-lies in the competitiveness of their salaries.

The company, founded in 1921, had suspended its operations in August 2010 and was under a form of bankruptcy protection allowing the company to negotiate with creditors and make restructuring plans. Investors expressed interest in the company but a financial rescue never materialised despite extensions given by the court to provide the company more time to find a solution.

Pilot Program on NAFTA Long-Haul Trucking Provisions


 

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its proposal for the initiation of a United States-Mexico cross-border long-haul trucking pilot program to test and demonstrate the ability of Mexico-based motor carriers to operate safely in the United States beyond the municipalities and commercial zones along the United States-Mexico border. 

 

The pilot program is part of FMCSA's implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) cross-border long-haul trucking provisions. This pilot program would allow Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate throughout the United States for up to 3 years. U.S.-domiciled motor carriers would be granted reciprocal rights to operate in Mexico for the same period. 

 

Participating Mexican carriers and drivers would be required to comply with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations, including those concerned with motor carrier safety, customs, immigration, vehicle registration and taxation, and fuel taxation. The safety of the participating carriers would be tracked closely by FMCSA with input from a Federal Advisory Committee.

SKYWATCHING IN 2014

THE MONTLY SKIES


 APRIL


 

Mars reaches opposition on the 8th. It is now as close to Earth as it will be for about two years, until its next opposition. Although not one of its nearest visits, at 57 million miles, the planet's brilliance and ruddy hue draw attention. Look in the east after sunset. The Moon is in the vicinity of Mars on the night of the 14th. Saturn rises three hours later than Mars in the same general direction.
