With the support of the Secretary of Economy, INADEM, PROMEXICO and the MEXICO 4.0 Industrial Cluster, along with other companies and innovators, Mexico achieved an unprecedented success at #CES2018.

Las Vegas, Nevada - After huge successes for Mexican companies at the world's largest technology show, CES (Consumer Electronics Show), the secretary of Innovation, Science and Technology of Jalisco, Jaime Reyes, announced the government of Mexico's commitment to double the size of their presence at next year's CES 2019.

"Over a year ago we decided to have Jalisco represented at CES 2017 and we did with only 3 companies. We made an agreement with AngelInventum to capitalize on our initial success to bring 20 cutting edge disruptive technology companies to CES 2018 to put Mexico in the international Spotlight of the Industrial Revolution. We have decided to commit to supporting over 50 companies at CES 2019," said Jaime Reyes, Secretary of Innovation and Technology of Jalisco.

"We contacted the vice minister of Economy, the director of INADEM and the State Minister of economic development. All of them immediately agreed to cooperate in this initiative and our dream came true! Our focus is to make contributions to social challenges providing our country a higher quality of life. Cluster 4.0 is now the main driver for positioning Jalisco as the new technological frontier in the knowledge economy and be the epicenter to expand to other regions in Mexico to achieve international competitiveness. The social challenges on SME's must be fostered by platforms that allow the development of products for massive consumption based on the infrastructure for scientific and technology development in Jalisco, testing capabilities and advanced flexible manufacturing that our competitive ecosystem offers meaning a high value added to our services and products," he continued.

"With the support of the Secretary of Economy, INADEM, PROMEXICO and the MEXICO 4.0 Industrial Cluster, along with many other companies, entrepreneurs, innovators, investigation centers and people working together as a team, we have achieved an unprecedented success at #CES2018."
