Who is Texas-Mexico Trade Coalition (TMTC)?
The Texas-Mexico Trade Coalition (TMTC) represents businesses and associations across the state of Texas and Mexico. TMTC is dedicated to fortifying the uniquely strong economic relationship between the U.S. and Mexico, and providing further opportunities for deepening economic integration.
Both Texas and Mexico have seen their economies grow since NAFTA went into effect in 1994. With the ratification of USCMA, TMTC will continue to advocate for a US-Mexico relationship that incorporates recent technological advances and changes in certain sectors – without interrupting the $1.3 trillion in annual trade across the border.
With more than 700,000 jobs and about $110 billion worth of goods to Mexico annually, equating to up to 40% of Texas’ total exports, our state has the most to lose if this relationship is not treated with the seriousness it deserves. A strong relationship with Mexico ensures Texas' ongoing economic vitality.
