"The location of Mexico provides us with an ideal basis from which to intensify our global growth," Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG said on the occasion of the visit by the Mexican government delegation from Puebla. A stable economic growth of up to five percent per year makes Mexico the growth engine of Latin America, he continued. As a new mainstay of Audi production, Mexico would also be instrumental in achieving the company's strategic goals, he added. "Competitive cost structures and diverse free trade agreements with North and South American markets and with Europe," Stadler said, "will help us further increase our sales."
