2020 Binational Delegation to Mexico City

March 22 @ 7:00 pm - March 25 @ 12:30 pm

Event Navigation


IMPORTANT UPDATE: EVENT CANCELLED

The coronavirus situation is a rapidly evolving global concern. After much careful consideration, and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the tough decision to cancel this Delegation Trip. While Mexico has relatively few reported cases of coronavirus, we must consider many employers’ desire to limit travel and our role in preventing the spread of this virus. We are exploring options for rescheduling the trip for later this year.

The Chamber will issue full refunds for trip registration fees. Participants will receive individual emails with refund confirmation.

The Four Seasons Hotel is honoring cancellations without fees. However, please cancel your room as soon as possible by calling +52-55-5230-1818.

As a community, it is important that we stay up to date on the status of coronavirus locally. The County of San Diego’s new website www.sandiegocounty.gov/coronavirus is a good resource, updated each weekday with real-time information on what is happening locally. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and CDC are also reliable sources for information and best practices on preparation for coronavirus impacts.


Why Attend?

In the last few months, we’ve seen significant progress on several of our region’s key priorities like USMCA, the new North American free-trade agreement, solutions to address pollution issues in Tijuana River Valley, and completion of landmark border infrastructure projects. Reaching these milestones is a testament to the power of our region’s longstanding commitment binational collaboration.

We need all the voices that make up our diverse and dynamic cross-border business community to make a strong, lasting impact. That message is most effective when we have a large, diverse representation of business and community leaders joining with us.

The 15th Annual Binational Delegation to Mexico City provides an opportunity for participants to meet with key federal officials and diverse business industry leaders to discuss 2020’s major areas of focus: border infrastructure, transboundary pollution impacting Tijuana River, immigration & workforce integration, and trade & economic opportunities. 

Delegates will also benefit from the opportunity to network and cultivate strong political and business relationships.
