Chihuahua governor César Duarte, said that this same year work will begin on a rail bypass from Samalayuca to Santa Teresa, NM, to facilitate the flow of commercial cargo between Mexico and the U.S.
The Governor stated that he is applying before the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) for construction of the railway expansion, which would go from Samalayuca to Santa Teresa, NM.
The hum of economic activity along the U.S.-Mexico border in Santa Teresa is the welcome sound of money changing hands. It’s called trade.
Companies are flocking to the industrial border zone just north of the Santa Teresa Port of Entry at a pace not seen since the 2008 recession. They will be supplying the maquiladoras in Mexico with components, raw materials, storage for finished goods coming out of the factories and transportation to distribute the goods around the U.S. and into Canada.
Santa Teresa is a place whose time has come.
New Mexico’s border industrial zone is booming like never before, as companies scramble to set up shop or expand operations to supply Mexico’s “maquila” assembly industry with raw materials and components, and to provide storage and transportation services to move finished goods from Mexico to markets in the U.S. and Canada.
