WHEN: Tuesday, February 3rd, 9am-11am
WHERE: Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Washington, DC
*A live webcast will be available.
The Woodrow Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute is pleased to invite you to the launch of the report, The U.S.-Mexico Border Economy in Transition. This report lays out the major issues involved in border region economic development, compiles the many innovative ideas developed at four forums, and weaves them into a series of policy recommendations that draw on the experiences of those who understand the border best: the individuals who live in border communities and who cross back and forth between Mexico and the United States as a part of their daily lives.
Speakers include: U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar (28th District of Texas), U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke (16th District of Texas), U.S. Representative Juan Vargas (51st District of California), Antonio Ortiz Mena, Head of Section for Economic Affairs, Embassy of Mexico in the United States, Sue Saarnio, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, Department of State, Diputada Imelda Guadalupe Alejandro De La Garza, Border Legislative Conference Chair and member, Nuevo León State Legislature, among others.
