A half-day summit to discuss trade and the relationship between California and Mexico will be held Wednesday in Fresno, hosted by ProMéxico, Consulate of Mexico and Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development.
The parties will explore trade opportunities and assets that could benefit the cross-border relationship, much like the meeting between Gov. Jorge Aristóteles Sandoval Díaz of Jalisco, Mexico, and Fresno civic leadership in early June.
Nearly 20 organizations are expected to participate in the discussion, including Fresno State and the California Department of Food and Agriculture. The meeting is part of a larger conversation, which started with Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2014 agreement with the Mexican government.
The summit will be held starting at 9 a.m. at the Falls Event Center, 4105 W. Figarden Drive in Fresno. For more information or to register, go to fblinks.com/summit.
