About This Event




The Arizona-Mexico Commission (AMC) Summit is the AMC’s signature, premier cross-border annual event. Top level business leaders and policy makers from Arizona and Mexico will gather under the leadership of Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Sonora Governor Claudia Pavlovich to promote a strong, cooperative binational relationship. The summit will consist of high-level speaker panels ranging in topics from cross-border business to industry innovation and dynamic cultural events. In addition, the AMC, in partnership with the Comision Sonora-Arizona, will host fourteen binational committee meetings with business and government leaders to develop initiatives promoting Arizona-Mexico trade and binational information sharing. As a result, the summit will have a lasting impact on our region, facilitating relationship-building and advocacy.
