The fourth annual U.S. Mexico CEO Dialogue
Louroe Electronics CEO Richard Brent has been invited to attend the fourth annual U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue in Washington, D.C. from June 10-11, 2015. The U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue is a mechanism for working toward the goals of increased economic participation between the United States and Mexico that Presidents Barack Obama and Enrique Peña Nieto set when they announced the U.S.-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue.
The June seminar, which will be the third U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue meeting that Brent has joined, will bring together business leaders to discuss how the two countries can work together to strengthen North American ties– particularly in the areas of trade, energy independence and energy competitiveness. The forum will discuss initiatives designed to improve border efficiency while maintaining border security. Government officials including U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker will also address the Dialogue on key issues in their fields of expertise. At the end of the meeting and after the group has agreed on a list of core recommendations, the U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue leadership will present these ideas to the public.
