Former U.S. ambassador to Mexico Antonio Garza believes that more needs to be done to help people see the benefits of trade between the two countries. For Garza, it is a matter of moving away from quoting large figures about economic impact to making it clear that trade is good for ordinary Americans. Despite the increasingly troubling political rhetoric of the U.S election race, Garza, who still lives south of the border, has not seen a slowdown in interest in investment in Mexico.
In this episode of our Nearshore Cafe podcast series, Garza discusses the need to champion closer collaboration between the U.S and Mexico, what a modern border can and should look like, and what all this means for the tech sectors in both countries. He also highlights the dynamic start-up and entrepreneurial culture of Mexico’s tech industry.
