Representing a partnership between the Mexican government and the private sector, Mexico IT’s goal is to raise awareness of the country’s IT industry, which is positioned as the most important nearshore technology provider to the United States.

No country is closer to the United States than Mexico, and benefits of working with the nation’s many service providers include NAFTA-assured free trade, robust IP protection, human capital capabilities, and strong support from the government.

Clients should consider Mexico attractive because of this combination of factors that include competitive total cost of engagement, relatively lower risk and other business drivers as cultural alignment, short travel distance and same time zone.

In July 2017, Gustavo A. Rivero Hinojosa was appointed Executive Director of Mexico IT, an Industry program operated by Mexico’s National Chamber of Electronic, Telecommunications and Information Technology Industries (CANIETI) in a coordinated effort with the country’s Federal Ministry of Economy.

The program’s goal is to increase awareness of Mexico’s expanding, global-ready IT ecosystem, showcasing the lasting commitment to building a formidable technology-focused population. This joint effort between industry and government has led to Mexico being positioned by several analyst firms as the most influential Nearshore outsourcing market in the Americas.

Prior to joining Mexico IT, Mr. Rivero served as Operations Coordinator at CANIETI and was a Project Manager at the Ministry of Economy. He has more than 10 years of experience in managing investment projects and commercial promotion for private firms.
