TAB Visit to Monterrey helps Strengthen Binational Business Cooperation to Ensure Mutual Success

Late last month, the Texas Association of Business (TAB) had the honor of visiting Monterrey, Mexico, to reinforce our strong private sector partnerships  and solidify our commitment to enhancing binational cooperation in support of the Texas-Mexico commercial relationship. At TAB, we take pride in advocating for the policies that have made Texas the most successful, dynamic, and fastest-growing economy in the United States. Our state's economic success is no accident; it is the result of strategic leadership on various fronts, including tax reform, regulatory policies, education, safety, and infrastructure development. We also know that sustaining this success requires fostering strong commercial relationships with our largest trading partner, Mexico.


Joined by TAB’s Chairman, Massey Villarreal, we had the privilege of signing a collaboration agreement to renew our dedication to working closely with CONCAMIN (Confederación de Cámaras Industriales, México), Mexico’s top business and industry organization, and their esteemed new President, Alejandro Malagón.

We also had the privilege to connect with a variety of premier business organizations in Mexico. From productive discussions at the Texas Governor’s Texas-Mexico office to insightful meetings with Tecnológico de Monterrey and COMCE Noreste, our interactions underscored the importance of partnership in addressing common challenges and seizing shared opportunities.

As always, it was a privilege to see Nuevo León Governor Samuel García and his incredible team, as well as U.S. Consul General in Monterrey, Roger Rigaud. Additionally, our dialogue with the Canadian Consul and Senior Trade Commissioner, Eric Gelinas, highlighted the interconnected nature of North American trade and the significance of trilateral cooperation. Wrapping up our visit with the IT Cluster leadership further emphasized the transformative potential of technology and innovation in supercharging the economic growth of our region.

With Mexico and Canada now standing as the top trading partners of the United States, surpassing China, it's clear that our collaboration with these nations is essential for maintaining our competitive edge on the global stage. By actively working together with Mexico and Canada, we can strengthen our collective position and remain an economic powerhouse.


As we reflect on our time in Monterrey, we are energized by the possibilities that lie ahead. By leveraging the strengths of Texas and Mexico, we can unlock new opportunities, drive innovation and create a more prosperous and resilient economy. We are grateful to all our partners and the leading business organizations and leaders we had the opportunity to meet with who share in our commitment to strengthening our binational cooperation.
