Strategic Partnership Seeks To Increase Border Trade And Job Opportunities
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) has announced a strategic partnership with Mexico-based trade show company Cintermex — a deal designed to help ease the U.S.’s ability to export to our southern neighbor, foster bilateral trade relations, and encourage job growth on both sides of the border.
On the heels of a recent 5-day visit to the U.S.-Mexico border region, Assistant Secretary of Commerce For Market Access and Compliance Michael Camuñez announced the partnership, which calls for ITA’s U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service staff to help train Cintermex’s clients on the value and benefits of exporting. The goal is to have the organizations working together to develop trade fairs that match targeted industries in both Mexico and the U.S.
“The U.S.-Mexico border is critical to the bilateral trade relationship between the two countries,” said Camuñez in a recent statement. “Strengthening the ties between U.S. and Mexican companies and encouraging cross-border trade will bolster our global efforts to increase U.S. exports and create good jobs here at home.”
While traveling the border region, Camuñez recognized and awarded companies and organizations working to drive border trade and increase job opportunities.
Cintermex, which owns the premier Cintermex Expo Center in Monterrey, Mexico, hosts over 600 conventions a year.
