Are Mexican businesses Dallas’ best chance to become world-class city?

Before consultant Joshua Levy met a North Texas delegation of business leaders this week, he joked that all he ever knew about Dallas was that it was “hot and humid.” And he didn’t care much to find out more.
But the Los Angeles-raised Mexico resident came away much more curious after the meetings.
“I had the impression that there is a lot of business there,” Levy said. “I’m interested to see what’s there.”
He’d see the biggest city in a bustling region with a nearby international airport. Yet, the city often misses out on major international business. Mexico, despite challenges, might be the city’s best shot to change that and help make Dallas a world-class city — not just part of a world-class region — for business.
That’s why the North Texas delegation took a four-day trip to Mexico’s capital. Both Mexico and Dallas already have strong ties and plenty to gain by doing business. The face-to-face connections help strengthen those bonds.
