It has been one year since the Chamber signed a Memorandum of Understanding with business organizations on both sides of the border. This collaboration has increased attention and efforts on economic development, attracted foreign investment, and advocated for policies that make our region the best place to live and work.
The stakeholder group has pushed for the progress of critical infrastructure projects that enhance cross-border efficiency such as Otay 2, the La Media Road Project, and the trade corridor in Tijuana, and has discussed regional efforts to elevate the Tijuana sewage crisis to a federal state of emergency with Baja’s list of projects breaking ground later this year. Other efforts include a binational database to promote the region and letters in support of a land port of entry trust fund and resuming southbound operations at PedWest in San Ysidro to further facilitate trade and travel across the border.
A special thanks to Chamber partners at the San Diego EDC, South County EDC, SD Tourism Authority, Consejo Coordinator Empresarial Tijuana (CCE), Tijuana EDC, Consejo de Desarrollo de Tijuana (CDT), COTUCO, and Smart Border Coalition.
