International Business Affairs Project Manager Mayra Vazquez attended a Bush Presidential Institute Working Group meeting at the North American Development Bank (NADB) office in San Antonio, Texas. The group contains business, transportation, financial, and academia leaders that meet regularly to analyze the possibility of a North American border infrastructure bank and strategies to expand the current role of the NADB, which currently finances projects in the border regions of the US and Mexico (but not Canada).

A discussion document is in the works and considerations from this working group will be taken into account for a final proposal following additional working group sessions. The Chamber team has worked to strengthen its relationship with both the Bush Institute and NADB in order to include San Diego priorities and educate the local community on two organization’s role in cross-border commerce.
