Excellent information was exchanged at this month’s Bilateral Committee meeting hosted by DRHCC at the Silver Eagle Community room.
The Bilateral Committee meets each month and includes the Acuña Chamber of Commerce, Del Rio Chamber of Commerce, Del Rio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Canaco Ciudad Acuna, Mexican Consul Ricardo Santana, Guatemalan Consul Jorge Archila, Acuña City and Government representatives, and Del Rio City and Government representatives, as well as Custom officials on both sides of the border.
The three Chambers of Commerce take turns hosting the meeting. Among the topics discussed at the March meeting were the tourism calendar of the many activities and events scheduled for almost each week and weekend in Acuña, continuing efforts to continue to promote safety and security in Acuña, possible bus transportation to/from Acuña, Mexican Consulate Scholarships at Rio Grande College in Del Rio, Tourism I-app by Del Rio Hispanic Chamber, and a marketing plan by the Del Rio Chamber.
DRHCC thanks all in attendance for a very productive meeting.
