The governor of the Mexican state of Queretaro said Monday that he planned to discuss seven aviation investment projects worth $150 million with different companies during the 2013 Paris Air Show. Jose Calzada said in a press conference at the Le Bourget exhibition center that he had about 15 meetings planned with aviation and aerospace companies.
The governor will be meeting with Canada’s Bombardier, which has already invested about $500 million in Queretaro. Eurocopter, which has a presence in the state, is looking at “a potential investment of $500 million,” Calzada said. Queretaro is “a safe state, which invests in infrastructure,” and is home to an aeronautical university that provides trained personnel, the governor said during an event at the Mexico Pavillion.
