The TABCCF secured a U.S. Economic Development Administration grant to assess Texas' economic competitiveness and supply chain resilience. Collaborating with TIP Strategies, Inc. and a statewide steering committee, we conducted stakeholder engagement and data analysis, resulting in the Texas Competitiveness and Resiliency Strategy. This strategy provides practical data and recommendations for regional enhancement, focusing on talent development, infrastructure, toolkit establishment, and sector-specific actions.
Considering relocation? Texas boasts the 9th largest global economy, a population of 30 million, rapid growth, and extensive connectivity with Mexico. These factors make Texas an ideal choice for operational expansion.

U.S. Mexico Correspondent Banking - April 2022

Shapiro, former Under Secretary of Commerce, analyzes the U.S.-Mexico correspondent banking relationship for its impact on both nations' commercial and geopolitical ties.

This information is based on a preliminary report by EY's Quantitative Economics and Statistics (QUEST) group and the Bureau of Business Research at the University of Texas at Austin, as commissioned by the Texas Association of Business.
