U.S. and Mexican Companies Show Stewardship
of our Shared Natural Resources
Mexico City, September 27, 2006 — Sixteen American environmental firms have arrived in Mexico to host exhibits at the Enviro-Pro 2006 environmental show to be held September 27 through 29 at the Mexico City World Trade Center.
“The United States and Mexico share many important interests, and our shared natural resources are chief amongst them,” said Ambassador Garza. In the past 14 years, Enviro-Pro has become the leading environmental event in Latin America. The U.S. Embassy’s Commercial Service and U.S. Ex-Im Bank are working closely with U.S. environmental firm to develop partnerships with Mexican firms, create jobs and economic opportunity, and support a safe and clean environment in this country.
“The U.S. Embassy’s Commercial Service and U.S. Ex-Im Bank will work with the American and Mexican environmental firms at Enviro-Pro 2006 to identify potential sales relationships, financing options, and opportunities for technological transfer and innovation. These partnerships between U.S. and Mexican firms bring our countries together in the search for sustainable businesses using environmentally responsible technologies. I applaud these U.S. and Mexican companies for their responsible stewardship of the precious natural resources that we will hand down to our children,” the Ambassador added.
In 2005-2006, the Embassy’s Commercial Service supported over sixty transactions in the environmental sector in Mexico, worth over $20.8 million USD.
