FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Steve Preston, CEO of Livingston International, is co-chairing the Strategic Trade Issues Working Group committee at the sixth U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue session taking place on June 15 and 16.

The Strategic Trade Issues Working Group, which Preston co-chairs with Moises Kalach of Kaltex, addresses ongoing trade challenges in three core areas: pending multilateral agreements impacting the U.S. and Mexico; U.S.-Mexico bilateral trade; and preventative identification of bilateral and trilateral trade disputes.

“Mexico is one of the largest trading partners of the U.S. Collaborating to assure a strong, long-term competitive position is crucial for businesses in both countries, especially in light of the changing landscape of global trade,” said Preston. “This working group will address the issues that we believe are most critical in achieving that goal.”

The U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue was created in 2013 by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Consejo Coordinador Empresarial (CCE), Mexico’s leading private sector business counsel, to strengthen economic and commercial ties between the two countries. The session on June 15-16 is the sixth in an ongoing series of meetings. The previous meeting took place in Mexico City in early December.
