Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild traveled to Mexico recently to help celebrate the opening of Mexico Sen. Claudia Arellano Pavlovich’s new constituent services office in Guaymas, Sonora. After the event, the mayor met with the senator to discuss his future trip to Mexico City to strengthen ties there.
The mayor’s visit to Mexico was also an opportunity to learn about investment at the Port of Guaymas and what it means for future business opportunities.
The two-day trip was the latest in a series of mayoral visits to Mexico to help improve relations and foster economic development between Arizona and Mexico.
“As always, our short trip to Mexico was productive,” said Mayor Rothschild. “I learned a great deal about the Guaymas Port expansion and made valuable contacts to help bring business from Mexico to Tucson.”
Rothschild and Nogales, Ariz. Mayor Arturo Garino were the only two U.S. officials on the trip and Mexican officials expressed appreciation for their presence.
As part of the two-day visit to Mexico, Mayor Rothschild met with several officials, including Guaymas Mayor Otto Claussen, Port of Guaymas Director José Luis Castro Ibarra and The Offshore Group’s Executive Vice President of Operations, Carlos Espriu.Tags: business, economic development, Mexico, trade
