Arizona Governor And Sonora Governor Met Friday To Discuss International Collaboration

Arizona Governor Janice Brewer and Sonora Governor Guillermo Padrés Elias met Friday with elected officials and business leaders from Arizona and Sonora at the Arizona-Mexico Commission Plenary Session in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The semi-annual event serves as a platform for meaningful international collaboration between the two states, with the ultimate goal of strengthening the bilateral partnership and enhancing the economic growth and quality of life in the Arizona-Sonora region. Arizona and Sonora also are continuously working together to invest in and improve the infrastructure at ports of entry to greatly facilitate the flow of cross-border trade and travelers. These investments have paid off as 2013 saw a significant increase in cross-border traffic through Arizona’s ports, a total of 48.3 million people compared to the 42.4 million in 2012, a 14% increase in just one year. This is only augmented by the value of goods crossing through the ports, over $28 billion annually.
