Northern Border Committee Members

Building on their initial meeting during the Chamber’s last delegation to Mexico City, the Chamber team – as part of their involvement on the Northern Border Committee – co-hosted a meeting in Tijuana with Consejo de Desarrollo Econmico de Tijuana (CDT), a business organization that focuses on the economic development of Tijuana.

The meeting focused on border improvement projects, including: a multiple-reentry visitor’s permit to Mexico (FMM) for via land and sea, the consolidation of a North American trusted traveler program, and improvements to the Mexican pathway to PedWest. Each project represents the Chamber’s overall plan to advance trade between the United States and Mexico, which – at more than $1 billion per day – is one of the United States’ largest trading partners.

The meeting concluded with an agreement signed by the committee members to continue working together for a prosperous regional economy.
