SPONSORED CONTENT – The Greater Brownsville Economic Development Corporation (GBEDC) will launch its second virtual tour for foreign direct investors scheduled for December 2 at 10 am.  

GBEDC has taken a very aggressive virtual tour approach in working to attract new industry to Brownsville. The first virtual tour was conducted with SelectUSA, a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce. For this next tour, GBEDC is working with the State of Texas Mexico Office to target the Mexico City area and to explain to industries and manufacturers in Mexico the unique aspects and benefits of developing in Brownsville.

The El Caso Brownsville Tour will be hosted by José Ramón Fernández, Director of the State of Texas Mexico Office, and will feature Mario Lozoya of GBEDC discussing strategies; Tony Rodriguez, Director of Cargo for the Port of Brownsville; Ramiro Aleman, GBEDC, discussing resources and incentives; Karla De la Rivera, GBEDC, discussing retention and expansion, Griselda Munoz, Gerente General of CK Technologies, Brownsville; and Miguel Wheelock of AOC Gas Supply. There will be time allotted for questions.

“We have a formula and it’s being executed to the fullest to inspire manufacturers worldwide to consider Brownsville as a future location,” said Mario Lozoya, Executive Director of GBEDC.

Multiple planning sessions with the State of Texas Mexico Office, GBEDC and the GBEDC marketing team have prepared participants for this event. “There is a lot of planning to make a virtual tour run smoothly,” said Lozoya. “First is the development of the content directed at the target audience, followed by preparation of agendas, videos, and speakers. Beyond that are the technical aspects of putting on a successful tour. But it is well worth all the effort. The benefit to the growth and economic development of our community is clear.”
