PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona State Trade and Investment Office has opened in Mexico City.

Gov. Jan Brewer’s says it’s the latest major effort by the state to strengthen and secure economic ties with Arizona’s largest trading partner.

The new office will complement Arizona’s existing office in Hermosillo, Sonora.

It also will assist Arizona companies entering Mexico’s marketplace while also attracting Mexican business and investments to Arizona.

Brewer says the Mexico City office will be staffed by international trade experts who will work to secure opportunities that will have a long-term, positive impact on our economy and contribute to high-wage job creation in Arizona.

Trade between the United States and Mexico generated more than $760 billion in imports and exports last year, including $14 billion between Arizona and Mexico.
