Arizona Indian Gaming Trade Mission to Mexico City

The Arizona Indian Gaming Association (AIGA) sponsored a trade mission to Mexico City from June 8-10, 2022 to explore gaming, tourism, and commercial opportunities for AIGA member Tribes looking to expand business in Mexico. Led by Chairman Robert Miguel of the Ak-Chin Indian Community, along with delegates from the San Carlos Apache, White Mountain Apache, Pueblo of Isleta, and Hopi Tribes and the University of Arizona Native Nations Institute, the group met with a host of top business leaders, legal experts, and government officials who advised them on the state of play in Mexico.

Highlights included:
• Lunch with Lázaro Cárdenas Batel, chief of staff to Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador
• Breakfast with Mexican federal senator and indigenous affairs committee member the Hon. Xóchitl Gálvez Ruiz
• Mexican Olympic silver medalist Daniel Aceves Villagrán speaking to the group about opportunities to promote sporting events to Mexican audiences
• Learning the ins and outs of Mexico’s gaming industry
• Discovering opportunities for trade, tourism, and investment in Mexico via presentations by U.S. Embassy and Mexican Ministry of Economy experts
Mexican counterparts were eager to learn about the exceptional successes of Indian gaming in Arizona and explore partnerships benefitting communities on both sides of the border, from cultural and language exchanges with Mexican indigenous peoples, to opportunities for hospitality-related investments in Mexico. We look forward to continuing to advance the initiatives of AIGA in Mexico as they diversify and grow the economies of their member Tribes.

Check out Chairman Robert Miguel’s video interview with Indian Country Today as he discusses the recent trade mission starting at the 6:28 mark here.
