Los Angeles, CA- Many Latino small businesses in the United States consider Mexico to be the ideal market for expansion for reasons that include its close proximity, the rate of economic growth, which in 2015 reached 2.5 percent, and the size and strength of sectors such as food, tourism, medical products, and automotive.

All this will be widely discussed at the “Mexico, Opportunities to Expand and Grow Revenues” Business Expo held on April 20 at the Quiet Cannon in the city of Montebello. Under the organization of Su Socio de Negocios, El Clasificado, and the Consulate of Mexico in Los Angeles, the event will be held in Spanish, completely free for attendees, and will include opening remarks from Carlos M. Sada, the recently appointed Ambassador of Mexico in the United States.

“Mexico is one of the most attractive countries to invest in, with a modern and world-class infrastructure where people from outside find a favorable business environment,” said Carlos M. Sada. “This expo is of great interest to us, and helps in the initiative to provide all Los Angeles small business owners with an overview of the advantages and opportunities that Mexico offers today.”

Following Consul Sada’s introduction, will be a five member panel that will discuss topics related to investment and small business expansion in the US-Mexico environment. Moderated by US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce Executive Regional Director and expert of the political and economic landscape in Mexico, Marlen, Marroquín, the panel will discuss topics related to investment and expansion of small businesses in the US-Mexico environment.

Experts scheduled to be a part of the forum include: Juan Carlos Briseño, Trade & Investment Commissioner of ProMexico; Oswaldo Lainez, Director of International Business at Tres Global Trade; César Flores, West Director at Mexilink, and Jose “Lupillo” Ramirez, Hispanic Product/Private Label and Differentiation Director at Northgate González Markets, will also play a key role in the panel educating Latino entrepreneurs about the distribution channels of Mexican products in the US. In addition, Tayde Aburto, President and CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce will come from San Diego loaded with digital tools and strategies that can also be applied to social media networks, for those looking to start a successful eCommerce business.

Among those already looking forward to the event includes Martha de la Torre, President and Cofounder of Su Socio de Negocios and El Clasificado, who will give a brief presentation following Mr. Sada’s introduction. Believing the expo will emphasize not only the successful business relations between Los Angeles and Mexico, Ms. de la Torre is also hopeful the information they gain will give entrepreneurs new ways to grow. “Our community of Hispanic small business owners is very dynamic and is always looking into new ways of doing business. With this expo, we want them to learn from the best and continue generating revenue and opportunities for those around them.”

An ideal place to expand business connections, thanks to more than 30 exhibitors with snacks served from 5:30 to 9 pm, the event will also feature informational seminars offered by T-Mobile and Small Business Development Center (SBDC) starting at 5 pm.
