2018 Binational Delegation to Mexico City
April 15 @ 7:00 pm - April 18 @ 12:30 pm
From international trade to the wall, the U.S. and Mexico relationship and our Cali-Baja region is at the forefront of the national political stage. With this has come a growing uncertainty for the future of our binational relationship. As a national model for productive and collaborative cross-border trade and commerce, it is critical that Cali-Baja leaders voice our support for the policies and projects that will continue to strengthen our cross-border communities.
The 13th Annual Binational Delegation to Mexico City provides an opportunity for participants to meet with key federal officials and diverse business industry leaders to discuss 2018’s major areas of focus: NAFTA, border infrastructure, environmental issues (Tijuana River Valley), immigration/workforce integration, and Mexico’s 2018 presidential election.
Delegates will also benefit from the opportunity to network and cultivate strong political and business relationships.
Please click here for a recap of the 2017 trip and see what can be accomplished when we work together with a strong, unified binational voice. Also, see why Mexico City was named the #1 Place to Go in 2016, according to The New York Times!
