US and international trade have been in flux over the last year. With NAFTA negotiations still ongoing and near-monthly announcements of new US tariffs on Chinese imports, Co-Production International (CPI) seeks to support and educate manufacturers as they adjust to an ever-changing trade environment. As a part of the Fall Education Programs, CPI is offering two no-cost opportunities to both learn how these changes will affect manufacturers and see manufacturing in Mexico first hand.

CPI kicks off the Fall Education Program with a webinar on October 2nd at 11am. Attendees will learn from a panel of experts including the US/Mexico customs specialist, Eduardo Acosta, the compliance expert, Karia Herrera, and Mexico manufacturing sage, Veronica Contreras. Covering questions such as how new tariffs will impact their bottom line, opportunities for business continuity solutions to these tariffs and how to expand manufacturing operations to Mexico.

“CPI’s goal with our Baja Manufacturing Tours is to take attendees from the conceptual to reality. We give them ample time with decision makers at world-class manufacturing facilities and a chance to walk plant floors, all offering US manufacturers real-world insights to their questions about how to get started in Mexico,” said Denisse Martinez, tour coordinator and Director of Marketing for CPI.

The Baja Manufacturing Tour on November 1st is the second prong of the education opportunities available to manufacturers this Fall. CPI’s Baja Manufacturing tours are no-cost and include transportation to and from San Diego, visits to high-tech manufacturing facilities and a delightful dinner featuring BajaMed cuisine and award-winning regional wines. This unique opportunity allows attendees to talk with successful Mexico manufacturing operators about their experiences.

Don’t take our word for it, here are what past attendees have said about the experience:

“I cannot recommend taking part in one of CPI’s tours more highly for anyone interested in being more involved in the growing Baja California Norte manufacturing community. The team at CPI has the experience, the tools and the professional gravitas for everyone from a start-up to an established Fortune 400 company,” remarked a past tour attendee and the Project Director of the largest independent custom product and packaging solutions provider in the United States.

“The Baja Manufacturing Tour was so well planned and executed. We felt a warm welcome from CPI’s team and the companies we visited. It was an eye-opening experience for us to see and observe these world class operations, and also help us start to understand the options and cost benefit of setting up operations there,” said Han Sun, a furniture manufacturer and past tour attendee.
