Leaders from Arizona and Sonora discuss economic development in binational meeting in Phoenix

Arizona Sonora Megaregion Meeting

Elected officials, business leaders and economic development professionals from Arizona and Sonora participated in the 2018 Arizona-Sonora Megaregion Meeting in Phoenix, the first meeting since Andrés Manuel López Obrador became president-elect of Mexico.

The objective of the meeting was to expand local government connections, establish best practices, identify collaborative opportunities and provide a forum to speak on binational policy matters. Leaders from both nations discussed tourism, the shift in Mexican politics and the upcoming inland international cargo hub at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport that will house both U.S. and Mexican customs called SkyBridge Arizona.
