I am scheduled to have lunch this week with border economic development specialist Jerry Pacheco. I will publish some of the results of that interview, on Friday.
Pacheco was briefly Deputy Secretary for Economic Development in 2003, and was assigned to Mexico City during the 1990s as the New Mexico trade representative to Mexico. He worked for a number of years with the Santa Teresa Real Estate Development Corporation, and is currently executive director of the International Business Accelorator, in Sunland Park. He writes an excellent column about border issues for the Albuquerque Journal. No one is more familiar with the whole gamut of business issues in Sunland Park, Santa Teresa, Cd. Juarez, and San Jeronimo, than Pacheco.
