Latin America recognizes Mexican engineersBy Fernanda Duque Hernández
Education: The key to progress.
During the 10th edition of the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2015, politician leaders, entrepreneurs and renowned members of the society gathered in the Riviera Maya to discuss about the economic and social improvement of Latin American countries. Under this context all of them coincide in one point: education.
No economy and no society can grow without the adequate academic instruction. It’s a fact that a nation can export an enormous amount of products, but its most valuable treasure is its people. Through research, innovation and technological development, professionals can transform the economy of any nation.
According to experts, the challenge for the next 5 or 10 years will be the enforcement of human resources. Tomas Gonzalez, Colombia’s Minister of Mines and Energy, stated that more than education, young people need to be closely involved with the field, with public and private companies from the moment they start their studies; in order for them to fully develop their skills. It’s a proven-fact that the young workforce are the ones who are transforming industries through technology and daring solutions that can slow climate change.
To exemplify this, we have the case of Mexican engineers. Ignacio Sanchez Galan, executive director of Iberdola, Spain highlighted that Mexico stands out for the excellence of its engineers, who -in the last years- have developed important innovations in almost every field.
But does Mexico import or export talent? Emilio Lozoya, CEO of Pemex stated that Mexico hasn’t developed this sector quite yet… Nonetheless, it’s obvious the nation holds great talent and skills from students, who year after year graduate from Mexican universities and institutions.
