BUSINESS BRIEFING POSTPONED
(Posted October 2, 2017): USTDA has notified AAAE that it is postponing the Tuesday, October 17, 2017, Mexico Airport Infrastructure and Operations Reverse Trade Mission (RTM) Business Briefing. Mexico City airport officials are still committed to participating in the RTM, but due to post-earthquake related matters, key people could not be out of town for an entire week at this time. AAAE is working diligently with USTDA and Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México, S.A. de C.V. (GACM) on a new date for later this year. We will post the new date on this webpage when available. If you would like to be notified when the date is posted, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
BUSINESS BRIEFING - DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency is hosting the Mexico Airport Infrastructure and Operations Reverse Trade Mission with visits to Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and San Diego. The delegation includes senior officials from Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México, S.A. de C.V. (GACM), a government-owned entity and concessionaire to the new Mexico City International Airport currently under development as well as the existing international airport in Mexico City. As part of the visit, USTDA is hosting a business briefing (rescheduled date and location to be announced) during which U.S. companies can learn about the new Mexico City International Airport project and GACM’s development plans, including its objective of obtaining Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Attend the business briefing to:
• Meet one on one with Mexico City Airport decision-makers
• Understand project development plans
• Learn about upcoming project opportunities
Topics of discussion will include:
• An overview of the new Mexico City International Airport project
• Infrastructure and technology procurement opportunities
• U.S. Government project and trade finance resources
In 2013, the current Mexico City International Airport reached capacity, serving 34 percent of all passenger traffic in the country and more than 50 percent of total air cargo. In response, the Government of Mexico announced it would replace the current airport with a new airport through a 50-year concession agreement with GACM. As part of its multi-phase development and implementation plan, GACM seeks to equip the new airport with the latest in modern aviation infrastructure and technology, including solutions that support potential LEED certification.
