On May 24 and 25, the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce (USMCOC) hosted its Annual Meeting, Binational Conference and Good Neighbor Awards 2016 event in Washington, D.C. On May 25, KCSM president, general manager and executive representative Jose Zozaya was sworn in as the organization’s chairman of the binational board members.
USMCOC is a leading binational business organization working to build mutually beneficial trade and investment relationships in the Americas. The organization has served as a bridge for businesses on both sides of the border, helping to overcome differences in legal, regulatory and economic matters, as well as language and cultural differences. It has successfully worked to build closer relationships between the public and private sectors in both countries, and its contributions have been essential in the promotion of business between the U.S. and Mexico.
Zozaya’s appointment comes at a pivotal time for U.S.-Mexico relations. The U.S. presidential elections and the rise of an on-demand economy signal new challenges and opportunities for bilateral relations regarding political, economic and business matters in both countries.
During the two-day event, Zozaya also served as a keynote moderator for a panel discussion on supply chain, logistics, transportation and infrastructure. KCS was among the sponsors of the event.
