International Community Border Plaza PolicyHack
April 2, 2019
The Border Industrial Association, Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance
To compete globally we must collaborate regionally! The Cross Border Campus PolicyHack in Santa Teresa, NM was sponsored by Dell Technologies, Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance, and the Border Industrial Association, with stakeholders from both the United States and Mexico. Team One tackled the policy pros and cons facing a cross border industrial campus, while Team Two identified industry clusters that would be well suited for production at the campus. All participants left the event yesterday with a better understanding of how this unique region, composed of three states and two countries, can come together to build a campus for emerging technologies and high value jobs.
