The Employers Confederation of the Mexican Republic (COPARMEX) highlights that improving security and guaranteeing water supply are the strongest challenges for nearshoring to consolidate in Mexico.

The Employers Confederation of the Mexican Republic (COPARMEX) has highlighted two critical challenges that need to be addressed for nearshoring to thrive and consolidate within Mexico: improving security measures and ensuring reliable access to water resources.

Security is a major concern for businesses considering nearshoring operations in Mexico. Ongoing issues such as organized crime, violence, and theft pose significant risks to companies and their employees. Without adequate security measures in place, businesses may hesitate to invest in manufacturing facilities or establish operations in Mexico. COPARMEX's focus on enhancing security reflects the need for government action to address these challenges through law enforcement initiatives, enhanced surveillance systems, and collaborative efforts with private sector stakeholders.

In addition, reliable access to water is crucial for sustaining industrial activities and supporting economic growth. Mexico's arid and semi-arid regions face water scarcity worsened by factors such as climate change, population growth, and inefficient water management practices. Insufficient water availability can disrupt manufacturing processes, hinder agricultural production, and impede overall business operations. COPARMEX's acknowledgment of this challenge underscores the importance of investing in water infrastructure, conservation efforts, and sustainable water management practices to ensure a steady and adequate water supply for nearshoring activities.

Addressing these challenges is vital for Mexico to take advantage of the opportunities presented by nearshoring and attract foreign investment in key industries such as manufacturing and technology. By prioritizing security enhancements and water resource management, Mexico can create a conducive environment for businesses looking to establish or expand their presence in the country. Additionally, proactive measures to mitigate security risks and water scarcity will strengthen Mexico's competitiveness as a preferred nearshoring destination, fostering economic development, job creation, and regional prosperity.
