Representing the two major Arizona metropolitan regions and the border region were Mayors John Doyle of Nogales, John Giles of Mesa, Greg Stanton of Phoenix, Sharon Wolcott of Surprise, Jonathan Rothschild of Tucson, and Douglas Nicholls of Yuma. The mission was organized by Molera Alvarez and Estrategia Global, as Mexico Trade Representatives of the City of Phoenix.

The Mayors brought a unified message of openness and mutual respect towards Arizona’s number one trade partner, on the occasion of the first anniversary of the opening of the Arizona Trade and Investment Office in Mexico City. Highlights of the mission included the signing of an economic development agreement between Phoenix and Mexico City, and a town hall discussion with students at the prestigious Universidad Iberoamericana. In addition, the Arizona Business Incubation Association, the Arizona Technology Council and Startup Mexico (Mexico’s premier startup incubator) signed an agreement to collaborate on mutual soft-landing programs in both markets.
