Once again, the Heard is proud to be partners with the not-for-profit Ideas Exchange, Zócalo Public Square, in presenting an evening of fascinating discussion on a topic of intense current interest. Admission is free, but RSVPs are required.
From the Zócalo Public Square website:
“While Mexico continues to battle corruption and violence at home, the country is also investing billions of dollars in infrastructure and transportation improvements near the border. Likewise, Arizona is working to increase tourism from Mexico and to speed up cross-border trade and travel. What will closer ties with Mexico mean for the Southwest–economically, socially, and culturally?”
Panelists: Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, who recently opened a trade office in Mexico City, Signum Research CEO Héctor Romero, and former Arizona-Mexico Commission executive director Margie A. Emmermann (now vice president of Molera Alvarez LLC). Moderated by Fernanda Santos, Phoenix bureau chief for The New York Times.
