A delegation of dozens of business and elected officials are scheduled to leave San Diego Sunday for the annual San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce trade mission to Mexico City.
Over the next few days, they’ll meet with representatives of numerous departments in the Mexican government and members of the Mexican Congress, tour the Mexican stock exchange, and attend a reception with U.S. Ambassador E. Anthony Wayne.
“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, the chamber president and CEO.
“Our annual delegation trip to Mexico City provides 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 competitiveness,” Sanders said.
Besides Sanders, the delegation will include Port Commissioner Rafael Castellanos, county Supervisor Ron Roberts, Chula Vista Mayor Mary Salas, Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina, and San Diego City Councilman David Alvarez. Several Tijuana officials are also joining the trip, which lasts through Thursday, according to the chamber.
