As California’s largest trading partner, Mexico is the ideal location for an additional Trade & Investment Office. The proposed office would provide assistance to California businesses and facilitate their expansion into the international marketplace.
In 2006, the California-Mexico Border Relations Council was established to identify new border priorities and fundable projects in the areas of infrastructure, trade, environment, health and security while supporting current and ongoing activities such as the Border Governors Conference, trade missions, border workgroups, and coordinating specific future projects with Mexico. The Chamber has worked to advance this initiative, including touring possible sites for an office during the 2014 Trade Initiative trip to Mexico City.
