On February 5, 2014, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker joined Enrique Jacob Rocha, President of the Mexican National Entrepreneurship Institute (INADEM), to deliver remarks at a breakfast hosted by the Mexico-United States Entrepreneurship and Innovation Council (MUSEIC) and the American Chamber of Commerce. Founded shortly after President Obama’s visit to Mexico in May 2013, MUSEIC brings together stakeholders from both the United States and Mexico to strengthen regional economic competitiveness and support entrepreneurship, a key Obama administration priority.
Secretary Pritzker was in Mexico for a five-day business development mission, focusing on promoting U.S. exports to Mexico and further strengthening the U.S.-Mexico commercial relationship. She was joined by representatives from 17 U.S. companies looking to expand partnerships and develop effective strategies for accessing and doing business in the Mexican market.
In her remarks, Secretary Pritkzer highlighted the progress made by MUSEIC and discussed the Commerce Department’s efforts to support the Council’s work. She also announced that the next MUSEIC meeting will take place in April in San Antonio, Texas. As Chair of the President’s Committee on Global Entrepreneurship (PCGE), Secretary Pritzker is committed to working with leaders from around the world to help create an economic environment that encourages entrepreneurship.
