At a time when national conversations about the border are skewed from reality, it was the perfect time to bring together the multiple leaders that work along our shared 2,000-mile border to collectively elevate the critical role border regions play in facilitating economic, social, and cultural transactions and transformations between our two nations for the 2016 U.S.-Mexico Border Summit. We are at the heart of U.S.-Mexico relations, and indicative of how important our place is that we hosted U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Roberta Jacobson, Mexican Ambassador to the U.S. Carlos Sada, Governor-elect of Chihuahua, MX Javier Corral Jurado, CEO of the San Diego Padres Mike Dee, Congressman Beto O’Rourke, and lots of other key folks from San Diego/Tijuana to Brownsville/Matamoros for a frank discussion about the realities that are at play at the border.

The Summit served as an opportunity for you to connect with other great leaders and potential collaborators. After all, the most important part of the summit is what comes next and how we translate the conversations into actions that move our border regions forward. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like us to make connections for you or to discuss potential partnerships, we are here to help.
