The U.S.-Mexico border region is one of the most important trade corridors for North American businesses, representing a $460 billion economic relationship between the two countries. The border region represents a critical staging point for U.S. commercial activity with Mexico where approximately 80 percent of U.S. exports pass through or originate in that region. It is, therefore, the key to unlocking the true potential of the U.S.-Mexico relationship.
As a means of facilitating a dialogue that will feed into on going border governors', legislators', mayors' and commissioners' policy making processes, the conference focused on identifying regional solutions to border related challenges and priorities such as: workforce needs and educational development; trade facilitation and supply chain solutions for cross-border trade; border infrastructure needs and regional border planning; public/private partnership opportunities and new innovative technologies; and identifying cross-border economic development and job creation strategies.
