Chamber Staff Participate in First Border-Wide Infrastructure Workshop

Last month, Chamber staff participated in the first and only border-wide U.S. – Mexico Border Infrastructure workshop, which was hosted by CALTRANS San Diego. During the workshop, both public and private stakeholders engaged in discussions on strategies for acquiring funding sources for border improvement projects.

Additionally, the workshop focused on five themes:

  • Funding sources/mechanisms and the application process;
  • Risks and risk mitigation for innovative financing;
  • Bridging and accommodating sovereign processes and requirements; and
  • The role of public resources in leveraging private resources.
