Chamber Binational Delegation visits Mexico to reinforce US-Mexico Relationship

Over 90 business and community leaders from San Diego and Baja CaliforniaBaja California were part of The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 13th annual three-day Binational Delegation that traveled to Mexico City on April 15th to reinforce the region's support for the U.S.-Mexico relatioship.

The group met with Mexican leaders and government officials to strengthen economic and diplomatic ties and discuss opportunities for collaboration on projects and issues affecting the region.

“It is increasingly important that we show our region’s ongoing support for the U.S.-Mexico relationship. Our businesses, communities, and quality of life depend on it,” said Jerry Sanders, Chamber President and CEO. “As a binational region we face unique challenges and opportunities. We know that to get ahead, grow jobs, and be globally competitive, we must work together. It’s that perspective we plan to share with leaders in Mexico City.”

The delegation was represented by a diverse mix of industries, organizations, and elected officials from both sides of the border. Taking part in the trip: San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastélum, Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina, Mexicali Mayor Gustavo Sanchez, and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus.

Delegates met with a variety of Mexican federal agencies and representatives to help advance the policies that benefit both economies, including:

  • Conveying our region’s support for a modernized NAFTA
  • Advancing border infrastructure projects including the East Otay Port of Entry, Calexico Port of Entry, and rail port of entry at Tecate
  • Securing details/timeline for infrastructure improvements to sewage systems and funding for water treatment facilities

Following last year’s historic Memorandum of Understanding between the Chamber and Mexico’s Senate, the delegation met with the Senate President and Senate leaders to define this year’s joint policy agenda. A top priority: ongoing remediation of the Tijuana River Valley sewage issue.

Mexican Secretary of the Economy Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal hosted delegates to share perspectives on the importance of NAFTA and continued bilateral cooperation to cross-border commerce.

Delegates also learned more about upcoming presidential elections in Mexico and their impact on issues such as NAFTA from a political strategist and national pollster covering the race for one of the city’s leading newspaper.
