Rio South Texas Economic Council recently held its first ever board meeting in Mexico and in the process learned a lot about economic development projects underway in Matamoros, Tamaulipas.
RSTEC chose to hold its meeting in the La Cancillería restaurant in Matamoros because the first member from Mexico to join the group, industrial site developer SIDEE (Servicios Inmobiliarios para el Desarrollo Exportador), is based in the border city. RSTEC members also visited an industrial park built by SIDEE.
“I was extremely excited that our board made the decision to move forward and host the meeting in Matamoros, Mexico, last week. We had a really good board meeting and a fantastic experience in Matamoros, a step in the right direction,” said Matt Ruszczak, executive director of RSTEC, in an exclusive interview with the Rio Grande Guardian and RGV Public Radio 88 FM.
