THE VOICE OF TEXAS BUSINESS
The Texas Association of Business is the voice of Texas business.
TXBIZ influences policy development and drives legislative decisions in Texas and Washington D.C. advocating for members’ bottom line.
TXBIZ represents companies of all sizes and industry sectors. They, along with our 200 local chamber partners employ thousands of Texans and produce $8 billion annually in business.
In 1993, when NAFTA was adopted, unemployment rates along the Texas-Mexico border were in double digits. The trade agreement increased business activity, created jobs and brought economic prosperity to South Texas.
Now, at the dawn of a new era with the implementation of USMCA, the economies of South Texas are prosperous, which is what those of us who worked to pass the new agreement were fighting to protect. Considering the fact that 95 percent of customers who purchase U.S. goods and services live outside the United States, trade is our lifeline.
