Why ASU in Mexico?

Building a strong and diverse relationship with Mexico allows Arizona State University the opportunity to gain perspective on regional challenges and to develop innovative, game-changing solutions to issues of importance to both sides of the border.


“We share a border and many common interests with Mexico. It’s natural that we seek stronger ties through education, research and innovation so we can help each other prepare for the challenges and the changing nature of the advanced workforce of the 21st century."

I recently took over as president and CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry, the state’s most influential business advocacy group. I knew going into the job that the chamber has a lot on its plate, but I’ve seen the depth and breadth of the organization’s agenda up close in my short tenure. At all levels of government, we’re advocating for economic policies that position the state for robust growth and a strong post-pandemic recovery. We’re working to keep job creators’ regulatory burden light so they can concentrate on investment and expansion, and not worry about red tape. We’re fierce advocates for a legal environment that balances the rights of defendants against those of an aggressive plaintiffs’ bar. I’ll sum it up like this: If it’s an issue that affects Arizona’s competitive standing, then we’re engaged. That’s why the chamber’s leadership teams takes Arizona’s relationship with Sonora and the rest of Mexico so seriously. Our two economies are so integrated, our cultures so intertwined, that many of our successes will be achieved together. No Arizona business organization was a more vocal champion for the passage of United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) than the Arizona Chamber. We knew that a trade agreement for the 21st century would position Arizona and Sonora for new jobs, new opportunities and even deeper ties. Whether it’s our two states’ highly interconnected automotive supply chain, our fresh produce trade or our advanced logistics offerings, I can’t think of a better place for business in North America than the Arizona–Sonora Megaregion. Before I officially started in my new post, I undertook a listening tour to hear from Arizona business leaders about the challenges they face in their industries, what encourages them and what they see on the horizon. All were bullish on Arizona’s relationship with Mexico. Equally enthusiastic about the relationship between Mexico and the state’s business community is Mexico Consul General in Phoenix Jorge Mendoza Yescas. Consul Mendoza was part of my listening tour and shared his vision for the relationship between Mexico and Arizona job creators, which I truly appreciate. He’s excited about what’s ahead for Arizona’s cross-border relationship, and I share his optimism. I consider him a friend and I’ll rely on his counsel as I lead the chamber. As the head of the state chamber of commerce, it won’t surprise anyone that I’m quick to tout Arizona’s assets when I meet with business leaders considering Arizona for new investment. You also can be assured that I’m placing our relationship with Sonora and all of Mexico at the top of the list
