Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch is leading a group of Indiana agriculture and tourism officials to Mexico to cultivate economic partnerships, strengthen agricultural relationships and highlight Indiana as a tourism destination. The delegates will meet with Mexican travel writers, tour organizers, travel agents, and potential businesses, who are interested in expanding their tourism reach to America. 

The agricultural delegation will focus on Mexico City, with a one day trip to the state of Hildago where they will participate in business to business discussions, government meetings, site visits and company tours.

In Mexico City, the tourism delegation will focus on relationships with key travel and tourism stakeholders, while promoting travel to Indiana.

Indiana is home to 15 Mexico-based businesses, including Azteca Milling, Allura USA, Bimbo Bakeries USA, Cemex Materials, Glasteel, Republic Steel, Transpoint Intermodal and Waelz Sustainable Products, that support more than 1,000 jobs across the state. 

Allison Transmission, Berry Global Group, Cummins, Eli Lilly, Franklin Electric & Company, Kimball Electronics, Maple Leaf and Steel Dynamics, are all Indiana companies that have operations and facilities in Mexico.

“After our successful trip to Canada, I am excited to bring agriculture and tourism partners to Mexico, to further our economic partnerships between the two countries,” Crouch said in a news release. “Indiana has a lot to offer and learn from our associates in the south, and I look forward to the positive conversations that will occur over this trip.”

The delegation is set to return Thursday.
