UCLA Hosts Economic Forum To Discuss Mexico-La Trade Relation

May 7, 2017

Los Angeles and Mexican business and political leaders discussed trade and collaboration between the two jurisdictions at a Friday forum held at UCLA.

The Los Angeles Business Council organized the inaugural LABC Mexico and Los Angeles Economic Forum to discuss how recent political events could impact the business opportunities stemming from Los Angeles and Mexico’s long-standing economic ties. Several U.S. officials, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, addressed the crowd of about 100 people.

Stuart Gabriel, director of the Ziman Center for Real Estate at UCLA, and Carlos García de Alba, consul general of Mexico in Los Angeles, discussed the amount of trade between Los Angeles and Mexico.

García de Alba, formerly Mexico’s ambassador to Ireland, said he has tried to balance providing legal services for Mexican citizens and promoting Mexico’s commercial interests in his 10 months stationed in Los Angeles.
