Snr. Hinojosa Jimenez said in his words of introduction “Welcome, and I am honored to introduce Secretary and Chancellor Derbez to this special event that has been organized as a result of a recent partnership and alliance formed between the UDLAP and our Chamber for Industry in Tijuana, CANACINTRA, that I believe will only strengthen both our institutions.

And I want to thank our sponsors, and in particular Snr. Wadih Kuri, CANACINTRA’s Vice President, and President and CEO of ABC Aluminum.

Wadih Kuri and I are working closely together to build the Chamber’s reputation both domestically and internationally, for the benefit of all our members, and the recently forged alliance with UDLAP, and this morning’s presentation by Chancellor Derbez is an important step in that direction.
