International Relations Efforts at the THCC

Welcome to the International Relations Section of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (THCC)! Over the last two years our international membership has doubled, and we have increased our membership benefits and services for those interested in working internationally. 

The International Relations Department was created as part of our mission to offer services that correspond to the need of our regional market and members. In addition, the THCC is always looking to find new strategies that will drive the prosperous development of our membership base and business entities. 

Our mission is to promote the growth, development and prosperity of our member businesses while promoting the Southern Arizona/Sonora region, whose diverse population has a very strong Hispanic presence.

The growing Hispanic market and its purchasing power has a powerful presence in our region, as well as its culture. A parallel market niche with our neighbors from the south must be fully taken advantage of benefitting both regions. Traditionally Mexican consumers and business entities have been our principal trade partners and customers. 

The trend will continue and the opportunities in the areas of business and trade expansion on both sides of the border will increase. Only 90 kilometers separate Tucson from Mexico and that short distance gives us an opportunity to develop trade and commerce. It becomes a central expansion point to many other opportunities since we can expand to the east, west, north and south. This natural advantage magnifies with the expansion of the Nogales Port of Entry. This expansion will also help the effectiveness of business trade between Arizona and Sonora and other states such as Sinaloa.
