Aiming to advocate as a unified mega region, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Mexico Business Center is reaching out to businesses throughout the binational region to extend an invitation to its 10th annual California-Mexico Trade Initiative trip to Mexico City, April 19 – 22.
In a joint press conference with the Consejo de Desarrollo Econmico de Tijuana – a business organization focused on the economic development of its city – the Chamber’s Mexico Business Center shared details of the trip, Monday, which will provide participants from California and Mexico an opportunity to meet and converse with key federal and other elected officials from both sides of the border, as well as representatives from select industries and organizations to discuss international commerce, foreign investment opportunities and policy.
The conversations will center around the recent agreements signed between the state of California and Mexico, which highlights collaboration in the areas of cross-border trade, innovation and technology, border infrastructure, education, and water and energy.
“Our continued efforts to enhance cross-border business speaks highly about San Diego at a local and international level as we strive to showcase our mega-region as a global competitor,” said Jerry Sanders, president and CEO of the San Diego Regional Chamber. “Our annual delegation trip to Mexico City will provide a valuable opportunity to raise our binational region’s profile and that of our member businesses as we advocate for policies that enhance trade and commerce, while also strengthening our global competiveness.”
“CDT believes in the importance of fostering ongoing strategic partnerships with like-minded business organizations on both sides of the border,” said Humberto Inzunza, president of CDT. “Our partnership on the Mexico Business Center’s Trade Initiative trip underscores our commitment to strengthening our region’s collective voice.”
Last year, more than 75 businesses leaders and elected officials participated. To sign up for the California-Mexico Trade Initiative trip, interested participants are encouraged to visit SDChamber.org/mexicocity for more information and to register.
