“With Mexico being China’s top vehicle export destination in Latin America, we’re excited that several Chinese new energy vehicle brands plan to establish local manufacturing operations within our country. This event allows us to not only source our targeted products, but also to explore the diverse range of offerings in the country’s new energy vehicle sector.”

“To keep pace with recent trends in automotive intelligence, connectivity and electrification, today’s students must be equipped with knowledge in areas ranging from electric vehicles to data analysis and more. We are grateful to CAPAS for providing a platform that allows us to directly connect with relevant companies, as this is important for tackling the skills gap in the market”
