WDI, in collaboration with Economic Development of Juárez and the US-Mexico Foundation (USMF), convened a week-long visit for 15 senior leaders in business, technology, academia and government from the State of Chihuahua, Mexico - a critical hub in the North American automotive industry.
The William Davidson Institute and the State of Chihuahua in Mexico will join together to research and develop a comprehensive strategic roadmap for the automotive manufacturing hub to transition to a competitive electric mobility (e-mobility) ecosystem. The partnership will explore the key elements of the emerging e-mobility ecosystem and the players necessary to make it possible.
As the mobility sector moves toward electrification, a massive shakeup among traditional auto players is underway. Our Energy team blogs about a new project with government & industry leaders in Chihuahua, Mexico to forge a roadmap for a strong e-mobility ecosystem.
We've taken pride in playing an important role in connecting businesses operating in low- and middle-income countries with the ideas and experiences of the University of Michigan community. We're excited to again be playing the role of connector by hosting three essential and insightful events in November, notes Institute President Paul Clyde.
