J.P. Morgan funds skills training for infrastructure development in Mexico
The JPMorgan Chase Foundation has announced a donation of more than MXN 9 million in Mexico to help provide certified training courses in construction skills such as plumbing, welding/soldering, electricity, wall finishing, steelworks, carpentry, painting, mechanics and heavy machinery operations to 2,000 low income residents of Atenco, Texcoco, Nezahualcóyotl and Ecatepec de Morelos. Course graduates will receive priority in being hired to work for companies mandated to help build the new Mexico City Airport. These communities are directly impacted by the construction of the new airport, one of the largest infrastructure projects in Latin America, and the courses will allow local residents to benefit directly from this project.
J.P. Morgan has supported Mexico’s development for more than 130 years. This project builds on the firm’s commitment to Mexico’s infrastructure and growth.
