Mexico’s Minister of Economy, Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal, has inaugurated a new textile plant of Seamless Global Solutions (SGS) in Puebla, according to a press release from the office of Puebla Governor.

Hence, Puebla State lays stress on strengthening quality education as an element of competitiveness, he added.
He said his government has made the largest investment in infrastructure in the state’s history, which creates confidence in investors and translates into jobs for Puebla citizens and drives the state’s economy.
He congratulated P.I. Mabe Group president Gilberto Marin Quintero for his vision to set up the textile industry in the state.
