Rolls-Royce PLC, the world’s second-largest maker of aircraft engines is eyeing Mexico to manufacture airplane engines. The company plans to set up a plant in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. This information was provided by the head of a British trade mission to Mexico.

Rolls-Royce Group PLC is a British multinational power systems company headquartered in the City of Westminster, London, United Kingdom. Apart from aircraft engines manufacturing, it also has major businesses in the marine propulsion and energy sectors.

"As Mexican manufacturing develops critical mass, more of these companies will come to get in the supply chain," David Wootton, Lord Mayor of the City of London, told reporters. However Rolls-Royce officials were not immediately available for comment.

Justin McKenzie, head of trade and investment at the British Embassy in Mexico City, added that U.K.-based oil and gas firms are also very interested in investing in Mexico, although those prospects hinge largely on the success of the Mexican government's efforts to allow for greater private investment in the energy sector.

After attracting automotive manufacturers from around the globe, Mexico has begun inciting the aerospace industry. The potential of the country is immeasurable and this has an immense impact on the investment sector. The improved economic situation has attracted lot of investments in the country. As an emerging global power, Mexico offers a more secure intellectual property environment than many other global leaders. The auto industry is at the cutting edge of Mexico’s economic resurgence. Fourteen percent of cars sold in the United States are made in Mexico, a record high. Mexico is on the resurgent path and there is no reason to look backward. With such positive attitude, it is estimated that Mexico will overtake Brazil soon.
Mexico’s economy is accelerating because of Mexico real estate, tourism and manufacturing prowess as the recent figures have registered a positive growth. There has been a fall in the dependency ratio (proportion of young/old relative to the working age population) which means a greater relative increase in resources and potentially stronger GDP growth. Summing up everything it means that Mexico is a promising investment with great returns.
