SOUTH OF THE BORDER:
FIRING UP ARIZONA’S INFINITE POTENTIAL FOR COMMERCE
Seizing Trade, Tourism and Investment Opportunities with Mexico
There is no ignoring Arizona’s awakening possibilities towards amplifying our trade relationship with Mexico. Our next door neighbor boasts a blossoming economy that has already surpassed South Korea’s, quickly positioning itself as an international and regional powerhouse for trade.
Capitalizing on their geographic advantage, our state’s counterparts, California and Texas have heavily invested in border trade. In fact, in 2012, Texas’ numbers revealed import/export trade with Mexico totaled $194 billion versus $13 billion for Arizona. Possessing longstanding historic ties with Sonora, Tucson is naturally positioned to serve as a hub for international trade. Arizona is geographically advantaged, packing potential to transform into an even more powerful economic engine.
