Expect a recovery in Economic activities Along the border between Mexico and the United States (EU), which will be promoted with the possibility of reopening land bridges next July, closed since March 2020 to visitors in a huge and non-discretionary way as is happening now due to Covid – the 19 pandemic is expected to restore Declining tourism and direct sales activity to the public in this area, for which Laredo, Texas is now ready.
In this context, I must stress that the series Donates It certainly maintains international trade between the two countries, although it continues to operate normally after a significant decline between March and May 2020, but it is also at risk due to the Mexican government’s policies that create conflicts in hydrocarbon and security. Legal sectors of North American investors, as well as open provocations to comply with international treaties.
It is important, regardless of the outcome of Mexico’s midterm elections in 2021, that elected officials maintain good relations with the United States and ensure effective compliance with the T-MEC treaty, given that auto manufacturing and other manufacturing plants are essential in the United States. Securing the supply chain between the two countries.
In addition, since all this is not interrupted and has even achieved higher numbers in international trade than the 2019 and 2020 averages, this balance must be maintained and the concern that China and Russia investments in Mexico correspond to T-MEC, if checked.
As the trading partner, Mexico plays a preponderant role in the economy of the United States, but the activity between the northern and northeastern states is remarkable because it maintains the economic focus in the automotive, metal and food industries that gave rise to many Mexicans. Companies to open US facilities in Texas.
In addition to the reliable, safe and advanced rail and road infrastructure in Texas, companies benefit from many direct non-stop flights to Mexico through major regional hubs and airports in areas where some companies have successfully grown either by designing, manufacturing, and distributing products such as Bimbo Bakeries USA. , Borden Milk Products, Cemex Concrete Products, Elamex, Interceramic and Mrs. Bird’s Bakery, among others.
In fact, industries shared between Mexico and Texas include food products, infrastructure, manufacturing, and minerals, and here it is worth noting that the accumulated FDI in Texas between January 2011 and December 2020 included 28 projects, worth $3.3 billion in capital investment. and 4,678 jobs created by 23 companies
If we add international trade and production in Nuevo Leon (NL), Coahuila and Tamaulipas with Texas, the result is an economy so strong that it can be compared to the one that ranks eighth in global economic activity.
The borders of Mexico and the United States, as officially announced by Marcelo Ebrard, last week, will remain closed to “non-essential” travels at least until the end of June of 2021, which when reopened will bring tourism and medical activity again between both countries in this important area .
In this sense, Teclo García, Director of Economic Development at Port-Laredo, said emphatically, “Laredo is ready and we are ready to work with the entire production chain from Nuevo Laredo and Colombia, NL and with factories and producers from all of Mexico.
While Aileen Ramos, Director of Tourism, highlighted that “efforts to balance international trade and tourism and not reduce health security measures taken in the face of the Covid-19 epidemic are the main objective of the Laredo authorities who have reached an agreement with Aeromar to increase the frequencies on the flight path between Laredo and Texas and CDMX”.
However, authorities in Laredo, Texas are also concerned about opening an uninterrupted door so that the balance that has been maintained with the landing pandemic is not jeopardized.
In that sense, I tell you Richard Chamberlain, head of Laredo Health, points out that “we have enough vaccinations for our residents, we’re already at 80 percent in Laredo, and we’re ready to vaccinate any visitors.”
The President of the United States, Joe Biden, made sure that enough vaccines were available so that the border with Mexico would have the necessary ones so that opening bridges to tourism represented a lower risk for both countries.
With all this, he concluded that the American authorities are doing their duty, and then, let us now watch that Mexico do their duty.
