Congressman Vela At UTRGV For Manufacturing Summit

BROWNSVILLE, Texas - U.S. Congressman Filemon Vela made a visit to UTRGV for a manufacturing summit.

Several panelists met for a discussion on potential future opportunities. They discussed the challenges for manufacturing along the U.S.- Mexico Border. One of the topics included NAFTA. As well as different ways the Rio Grande Valley can attract new manufacturing companies to the area.

U.S. Congressman Filemon Vela (D) District 34 said, "The idea here is to have our community leaders and educators walk away with an understanding of what it is manufacturers look for when they decide whether or not to come to a region and build new facilities."

Congressman Vela said right now the manufacturing industry is stable. There have been challenges to overcome over the last 10 years.
