2016 El Paso-Juárez Industry Summit set for Thursday

El Paso International Airport’s Foreign-Trade Zone No. 68 has organized the 2016 El Paso-Ciudad Juárez Summit to provide local businesses and industry tools to expand their markets.

This event serves as part of the FTZ No. 68’s mission to help expedite and encourage foreign commerce and to support local businesses in achieving global competitiveness. More specifically, FTZ No. 68 has been eliminating, deferring, and reducing customs duties for worldwide businesses since 1982.

The El Paso–Ciudad Juárez Industry Summit will feature two distinguished keynote speakers: Gabriel Lujan, Vice-President of HR Mexico and Central America for Lear Corporation and Federico Serrano Banuelos, President of the Mexican National Council of Maquiladoras from Mexico City. Both individuals come with a highly accomplished background in foreign trade and are known for high levels of passion and enthusiasm.

A regional panel will discuss the opportunities of doing business in the El Paso–Ciudad Juárez Metroplex.  Additionally, numerous regional firms, including logistics providers from El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, have signed on as exhibitors and will be on hand to provide key information and resources.

What can I gain from attending? If your business is considering expanding to a foreign market (such as Mexico, Europe or Asia) this is the event you want to attend. If your business is looking for suppliers and connections in a foreign market, this is the event to get you started.
