Jennings, Strouss & Salmon, P.L.C. is proud to sponsor the 2020 Virtual Arizona & Mexico Town Hall Series highlighting Cross-Border Connecting.
The Arizona & Mexico Town Hall’s Cross-Border Connecting Series will explore how the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) sets up Arizona and Sonora (and the U.S. and Mexico more broadly) for future growth and highlight how the USMCA better positions Arizonans and Sonorans to confront the economic challenges posed by COVID-19. The discussion is titled, “What the Implementation of the USMCA Means to Multinational Corporations, Small/Medium Sized Enterprises, and Entrepreneurs.” The program will include remarks from Hector Placencia of BRH2 Plastics and Claudia Orduno of Badger Meter, followed by a Town Hall style discussion between registered participants.
This program will discuss the recent implementation of the USMCA and its key provisions, and how the trade agreement has improved the business environment for Multinational Corporations (MNCs), Small/Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs), and entrepreneurs operating in Arizona and Sonora (and the U.S. and Mexico more broadly).
The focus: During the COVID-19 pandemic, Arizonan and Sonoran professionals who generally work from the office or enjoy the hustle and bustle of repeatedly traversing the border between the United States and Mexico to meet their colleagues and business contacts find themselves working from home due to government regulations, a closed border prohibiting non-essential traffic or company mandated “work at home” policies. These restrictions have forced companies and employees to revisit how the traditional work unit should stay connected and engaged with their teams and business partners located across the globe.
The goal: Participants build professional networks while providing important recommendations that can play a critical role in shaping the regional development strategy for the Arizona-Sonora megaregion.
