For the last two years, Escarcega has represented Index in the security table of the city in sessions where the different Chambers of the city gathered, together with security authorities from the three levels of Government.

The communication department of Index also shared that the new director of the finance committee has several planes for their new responsibility, mainly the fiscal subject, which is a particularly important subject, since manufacturing export companies must be aware of fulfilling the valid laws and other rules.
