So far this year, the Mexican industry has faced 21 railroad blocks in the state of Michoacán for a total of 45 days, for which the Confederation of Industrial Chambers (Concamin) made a strong call to the Mexican government to end the blockades to railways.
He added that this route is “key for the operation of strategic points”, arriving through the port of Lázaro Cárdenas raw material that is necessary for the operation of thousands of factories.
So far this year, more than 4,700 containers have been detained in the Port of Lázaro Cárdenas, for example, if it were cement, the traffic of 130,205 tons is affected annually with which 21,700 homes could be built or 3.6 times the Azteca stadium, Concamin explained.
a blockade has strong repercussions because it affects the operations of the companies, with the interruption of the transit of merchandise, there are millionaire losses for the companies, uncertainty is generated in investments and puts employment at risk.
“It is worrying that this type of act is beginning to become normal in the country. We cannot afford keep adding losses economic for Mexico and for Mexicans ”, expressed the president of the Commission, Felipe de Javier Peña Dueñas.
For the Concamin these blockades carried out with impunity “They turn Michoacán into an entity where the rule of law does not exist, affecting its ability to attract new investment and generate quality jobs.”
