The focus: "Competitive regions allow the companies that are located there to compete successfully in national and global markets while also supporting a high and rising standard of living for its citizens. The key to achieve this dual test is a growing level of regional productivity, driven by a business environment that enables innovation, entrepreneurship and growth.” Professor Michael E. Porter, the U.S. Cluster Mapping Project. Participants at the 2020 Arizona & Mexico Town Hall will actively engage in panel discussions focused on the regional competitiveness of the Arizona-Sonora megaregion and explore how to strengthen regional competitiveness across the region by expanding cross-border economic cooperation and opportunities between Arizona and Sonora.
The goal: Participants build professional networks while providing important recommendations that can play a crucial role in shaping the regional development strategy for the Arizona-Sonora megaregion.
Date & Attendance Requirements: September 17-18, 2020. While Thursday’s dinner is optional, active participation by each participant during Friday’s Participant Discussions is essential.
