They seek to consolidate commercial relations between the business sectors of Baja California and Baja California with their respective mayors.
Tijuana, BC, Sunday, November 19, 2023 To strengthen joint working relationships in the border business sector, the mayor of Ensenada, Armando Ayala Robles, held a meeting with the Mexican Association of Small Exporters and Importers (AmexPei).
The first mayor of Buenos Aires agreed that the commercial sector of Baja California and California should work together to expand not only their sales but
expanding their commercial relations with import and export goods through chambers of commerce.
Ayala Robles also said that it is necessary to promote the relationship between the governments of Baja California and California and their respective mayors, as was done by promoting sister city agreements between Ensenada and the towns of the southern United States to develop different areas.
The city of Ensenadense also said it is important to know and work to strengthen the development of the economy, tourism, infrastructure, public services, security, and education, which are fundamental to the search for growth in business sectors.
“As long as I continue to work in these areas, the opportunities for the binational economy will grow, and that is what I have to deal with with the mayors that we signed the Sister Cities program with,” said Armando Ayala.
In addition to those mentioned, he added the contributions that can be made in terms of equipment, knowledge, science, and technology for public services, security, firefighters, civil protection, and other areas.
Raúl Sánchez Aceves, general director of AmexPei, explained that this organization was created due to the lack of support received by small and medium-sized production companies in Mexico.
He indicated that in recent years, a joint effort has been sought between Mexican businessmen in this country and Mexicans living in the states of California and Chicago, United States, through their respective chambers of commerce.
Sánchez Aceves emphasized that there are about 600,000 entrepreneurs of Mexican origin active before the Chamber of Commerce until now, not counting all the Hispanics in the total share of the commercial sector of the American Union.
The director of AmexPei said that there is a diagnosis of how they can connect small and medium-sized businesses in Mexico and those owned by Mexicans living in California, especially for the sale of crafts in Mexico.
Finally, he added that for this reason they held working meetings with Senator Susana Harp Iturribarría, who became the defender of Mexican entrepreneurs and gave voice to the prevention of plagiarism in the designs of crafts made in this country and in selling Asian piracy.
The meeting was also attended by Eduardo Hernández, legal director of AmexPei; Javier Camacho, executive director of AmexPei; Miguel Castorena, representing the delegation of SEGOB in Baja California; Edgar Ortiz, social director of Sindicatura in Tijuana; as well as lawyers from the commercial sector and businessmen from the logistics, tourism, maquiladora, and commercial sectors of Tijuana, who are members of said association.
