“Both the private and public sectors must coordinate efforts. For example, Mayors and Governors from both sides of the border or representatives make joint delegation trips to other countries to promote the region or visit a company considering various sites for their future business expansion or relocation.

Because as a combined region, we are more competitive and, actually, unbeatable globally.” The Mega Region concept has been embraced by both Tijuana and San Diego Mayors. They do binational promotion, while a regional delegation also promotes the mega region in both countries and overseas. “The world is taking notice of our world-class innovative ideas and products and as a result, our aerospace, medical device, auto manufacturing and logistics industries in San Diego, Tijuana and Northern Baja are thriving. We will continue to promote our region and the possibilities that exist here on both sides of the border with one voice,” said San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer.
