Bleating explained that the “bottlenecks” in less competitive border region (EU, Canada and Mexico), as the trends point to regional integration for the production of goods. This will take more important when it comes into force on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP, for its acronym in English).
Just crossing freight Ciudad Juarez-El Paso has grown from 6 to 10 percent in the last ten years, but it has the infrastructure of the fifties and sixties, “said Tobby Spoon, president of Secure Origins.
