NAHB Conference Sets Stage for Business in Mexico
NAHB members can learn more about business opportunities in Mexico at the First International Housing Conference of the Americas, which will be held in Mexico City on Oct. 16-18.
Housing is a special focus of the U.S.-Mexico Partnership for Prosperity initiative that was launched by Presidents George Bush and Vicente Fox to promote economic development in Mexico.
That initiative received renewed emphasis at the Partnership for Prosperity conference in San Francisco last month, where investors and business owners from both countries met to share information and discuss trade and investment opportunities.
The conference was hosted by U.S. Commerce Secretary Don Evans and Mexico's Secretary of the Economy Fernando Cantales, and housing finance and construction were at the top of the agenda.
Building on the momentum and opportunities created by the partnership initiative, the upcoming housing conference — which is being launched by NAHB — will occur during EXPO CIHAC, the largest and most prestigious event for Mexico’s building and housing industry. Now in its 15th year, the show features more than 500 exhibitors, including more than 70 U.S. companies.
