On October 24th the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, Northeast Chapter (USMCOC-NE), in collaboration with PROMEXICO and AT Kearney organized the seminar “Mexico as a Nearshore Destination”, in order to discuss the IT capabilities and Business Process Outsourcing in Mexico. The conference consisted of panels with top Mexican Government officials, Mexican leading outsourcing companies and experts, as well as AT Kearney specialists that discussed Mexico’s advantages and challenges as a nearshore destination. It was a great surprise to see a higher-than-expected turnout in the seminar, and to learn about such a dynamic industry.

As some of you might know, during the past years, Mexico has been attracting more U.S. and global private equity investments. That is why the USMCOC-NE decided to set up a conference in order to present and discuss the current situation and perspectives, as well as the challenges and opportunities of this important sector. The speakers of the seminar, which included experienced lawyers, private equity fund managers, and advisers, engaged in a high-level and interactive discussion that revealed the great level of interest in the sector. Some of the topics included in the discussion were legal, tax and operational framework, as well as case studies and funds’ experience in Mexico. Given the great response of this event, the USMCOC-NE is considering organizing a private equity seminar focused on some specific industries at the end of 2008.

We were also pleased to organize a conference with the Mayor of San Miguel de Allende together with several real estate developers of the area that came to New York City to promote the attractive investment opportunities of this beautiful town in Central Mexico.

Our traditional Holiday Season Reception took place in a warm and chic loft in the heart of Soho, in which the attendees enjoyed delicious Mexican food served by Toloache and participated in the silent auction that featured hotel stays and air tickets to Mexico.
