Arizona is working to ensure the state is Mexico’s preferred business partner, according to the Arizona-Mexico Commission (AMC) , the state commission charged with forging trade ties along the border.
The partnership is critical to Arizona’s economy, the commission said following the release of figures that show the state exported $16.8 billion worth of goods to the country in 2015.
Gov. Doug Ducey, local mayors, congressional representatives and business and nonprofit leaders are showing tremendous enthusiasm for developing links with the Sonora region and Mexico in general, AMC Communications Director Ryth Soberanes told Arizona Business Daily.
