Did you know that big Tijuana-based international companies — such as Bose, General Electric, Hyundai, Kyocera, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Plantronics, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sharp, Toyota and many others — purchase more than $13 billion in components and services from outside our region each year? Attendants to this event learned about the abundant possibilities selling San Diego County components and services to the manufacturing industry just below the U.S.- Mexico border, and how innovative firms are cashing in on these opportunities while creating sustainable job growth throughout the multinational region. Get insight from top business leaders from the United States, Mexico, and Canada on how to make your business competitive in the global market. Business leaders also discussed the overarching implications of the growing San Diego-Baja California manufacturing industry for the entire North American region.
