TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Promexico, the Mexican government organization charged with the task of strengthening the country's ties to the international economy will be holding a seminar entitled, "It's Time to Do Business in Mexico," on Tuesday, October 26th from 8:00am to 11:00 at the offices of Mayer - Brown located at 71 S. Wacker Drive in Chicago, Illinois. Mayer - Brown, along with The U.S. - Mexico Chamber of Commerce will be co-sponsors of the event.

After the welcome and opening remarks by representatives of Mayer-Brown and the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Jorge Lopez, Promexico's Regional Director for North America will provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of the myriad of opportunities that await U.S. businessmen and women to the south of our shared border.

The balance of the program will be a discussion of the establishment of manufacturing operations at low-cost and low-risk via the utilization of the Shelter Program business model.

According to panelist, Chuck Yahn, "Manufacturers seeking to initiate and maintain operations in Mexico can do so in an accelerated time frame and without the need to make weighty capital investments by using the "shelter" model. Companies contribute their machinery, raw materials and manufacturing know-how, while the "shelter company" takes care of the functions that are critical, but non-core to the ongoing success of a manufacturing concern. These can include: human resources, payroll and benefits management, the import-export function, building and industrial park maintenance, worker transportation amongst others."

Interested parties may contact Miguel Leaman Promexico's Trade Commissioner at (312) 856-0316 for the purpose of pre-registering, or to ask any questions.
