In order to improve economic exchange, boost trade and improve competitiveness, to take advantage of nearshoring, the Texas Association of Business (TAB) met with Mexican business organizations.

The president and executive director of the TAB, Glenn Hamer, assured that trade between both nations is good and binational work is important to accelerate relocation and joint product creation to consolidate this region as the most competitive in the world.

During his speech, the vice president of the Legislative Liaison Commission of the Mexican Confederation of Industrial Chambers of the United Mexican States (CONCAMIN), José Manuel Bulás, assured that “nearshoring represents a historic opportunity for Mexico and Texas to rise to a global competitive center by enhancing investment, strengthening infrastructure and expanding trade through collaborative efforts within the private sector.”

To this end, he noted that “the private sector has developed a strategic plan aimed at promoting business dialogue, facilitating bilateral trade, improving infrastructure, aligning regulations and promoting investment.”

The event was also attended by Rolando Pablos, member of the Board of Directors of TAB and President of the Mexico Trade & Investment Policy Council; Shirley Temple, representative of Governor Greg Abbott’s Office of Economic Development; Luis Torres and Armida Rojas, representatives of the Dallas Federal Reserve; Gerry Schwebel, Executive Vice President of IBC Bank; and James Taylor, director of the State of Texas Office in Mexico.
