Arizona is properly positioned to additional develop financial advantages, cultural exchanges and a foundation for economic growth. In contrast to other states that have missed the mark on the development of accurate public and private partnerships, Arizona is a model of innovative and progressive suggestions shaping a bright future and causing worldwide opportunists to strategize on how to get involved right here.

From the begin of his term, Gov. Doug Ducey has supplied leadership in creating stronger international relations, not only with Arizona’s conventional trading partners of Mexico and Canada, but also with Israel and Europe, to make it clear that Arizona is open for company. For instance, Arizona’s trade office in Mexico aids to grow relationships required for more cross-border trade.

The governor’s efforts are augmented by those of other entities, such as the City of Phoenix opening its own office to coordinate opportunities and leverage economies of scale. In return, Mexico is opening its personal trade workplace in Phoenix, displaying our neighbor nation’s commitment to revitalizing its extended history with Arizona. Governor Ducey’s international visits will only highlight a lot more possibilities.

So long as competitive benefits continue to arise through the various ACA job-training and other incentive applications for international firms to move headquarters to Arizona, the state will remain a top rated place for relocation and expansion. With Governor Ducey’s enterprise background in branding, along with the consolidation of the ACA and Arizona Office of Tourism marketing budgets, a consistent message to foreign businesses that Arizona is open for business will continue to spread and continue to be backed up by genuine final results.

And, as recognized by competing states, Governor Ducey and the ACA have one thing that other states just do not have in fantastic capacity — a deep bench of local governments and private organizations supporting Arizona’s global message. Phoenix’s Mexico trade workplace and the Maricopa Association of Governments-sponsored Building an International Economic Network initiative are valuable touchpoints for bringing together Arizona and Mexico firms.
