As a continued commitment to its mission, MATT is facilitating the creation of the Bordernomics Alliance.

The Alliance will serve as a premier cross-border entity with the mission to increase economic prosperity and quality of life for all US-Mexico border states through strong public/private collaborations in advocacy, trade, and networking. Members of the Alliance will be composed of business and policy leaders from the US and Mexico to be the “the voice” of the border region.

In order to support the Bordernomics Alliance, MATT has funded $100,000 to commission the comprehensive study, “Bordernomics”. The study, set to be released January 2018, will be conducted by The Perryman Group directed by renowned economist, Dr. Ray Perryman. Our aim is to create a greater understanding of the economic opportunities that currently exist, and to raise awareness of the strategic geographic position that gives both countries a competitive advantage in the global market. The data to be obtained will examine cross-border trade and workforce flows on a regional and state level by concentrating on the following industries:

  • Automotive
  • Energy
  • Manufacturing
  • Agriculture
  • Healthcare
  • Transportation
  • Maquiladoras
  • Finance
  • Hospitality
  • Retail
  • Telecommunications
  • Data Centers

We are inviting 20 American and 20 Mexican companies, organizations or individuals, to become a Founding Member of the Bordernomics Alliance. A contribution of $25,000 will be used to fund the study and provide a sustainable foundation for the initiative. As a Founding Member you will have access to the following benefits:

  • Permanent member of the Executive Committee of the Bordernomics Alliance.
  • Receive a full copy of the study.
  • Gain access to raw data collection.
  • Receive corporate brand recognition.
