JBIC signed MOU with the four Mexican states of Aguascalientes, Jalisco, Guanajuato and Nuevo León aimed to support the deployment of Japanese mid-tier enterprises and SME in these regions. These MOU, whose main purpose is to support Japanese mid-tier enterprises and SME with whom Japanese financial institutions have business relations, agree to JBIC acting as an intermediary between the four state governments and Japanese financial institutions, and actively utilizing a Japan desk (a desk providing services exclusively for Japanese companies), which is scheduled to be established by the state. It also agrees on provision of advisory services to mid-tier enterprises and SME from both JBIC and the state.
These areas are now regarded the most important automobile production sites in Mexico for Japanese companies. JBIC will support the overseas deployment of Japanese mid-tier enterprises and SME business in cooperation with financial institutions.
