6/16/2017 Texas Association of Business, The Texas State Chamber
AUSTIN, Texas – Today, prominent Texas and Mexico business leaders announced the formation of an organization designed to develop, promote, and grow trade opportunities between Texas and Mexico.
The Texas-Mexico Trade Coalition is the creation of the Texas Association of Business, the Texas Business Leadership Council, The Borderplex Alliance, and their partners and members north and south of the border. Together, the organization will represent thousands of businesses and associations across the state of Texas and Mexico to reinforce that NAFTA works and could work even better.
“Texas and Mexico share much by way of history and culture, but we also share deep economic ties,” said Jeff Moseley, CEO of the Texas Association of Business. “The relationship benefits both countries economically, and we want it to continue to do so. Our goal is to make sure our voices are heard in any conversations that might impact that relationship and to provide real data from Texas and Mexico businesses to guide discussions at all levels of government.”
This week, Moseley met with Vice President Mike Pence, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Senator John Cornyn, Ways and Chairmen Kevin Brady and John Culberson, carrying the message that NAFTA is important to Texas businesses and critical to the nation’s economy.
