The San Diego/Baja California Border Trade Office Located in San Diego
Recognizing the ongoing business potential the northwest Mexico market offers U.S. exporters, the San Diego Export Assistance Center has created the San Diego/Baja California Border Trade Office.
Foreign Service Officer Geoffrey Bogart, a veteran of U.S./Mexico trade and former Commercial Consul in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, has been assigned to San Diego to lead this initiative.
With almost 900 maquiladora (assembly) operations, Baja California has more of these plants than any other state in Mexico. To increase their worldwide competitiveness, many of these companies are aggressively seeking local suppliers from Southern California and the border region to meet their needs. The Border Trade Office can help exporters tap in to this huge market.
For more information about business opportunities in Baja California, and how the Border Trade Office can assist, please contact:
Geoffrey Bogart, Commercial Officer, San Diego Export Assistance Center
