Mexicali Chamber of Commerce President Lidia Granados said the border restrictions lifting by the US will allow small businesses to revive after an 18-month hiatus.
The business leader told La Voz newspaper that the reopening represents a great hope for company owners who will be able to purchase merchandise for lower costs.
“This is coming in a time that we consider as more adequate,” Granados said.
The Chamber president added that that reopening will benefit businesses in both sides of the border, especially in Calexico that lost many customers.
However, Granados considered that some medium-sized and big companies would get affected.
Also, she told the newspaper that the reopening comes close to Mexico’s Black Friday-like Buen Fin or good weekend held Nov. 10-16 that is expected to increase business sales.
