Otay Mesa Chamber of Commerce recognized as Organization of the Month by Senator Ben Hueso

The Otay Mesa Chamber of Commerce is a business development and advocacy organization in our district that plays a pivotal role in the success of so many of our regional businesses. Its focus on critical trade issues and proximity to the US-Mexico border helps provide businesses with resources and access to both local and global markets.
“This year, with businesses experiencing unprecedented hurdles, the Chamber has been instrumental in providing COVID-19 resources to Otay Mesa businesses both related to financial assistance and workplace regulations. The Chamber successfully transitioned its MEXPORT trade show to a virtual platform and continues to develop informative seminars and workshops in a virtual environment.” mentioned Alejandra Mier y Teran, Executive Director.
The Otay Mesa business community has been a pillar in sustaining the region’s economy due to their manufacturers, mainly food processors and the entire trade stakeholder businesses supporting the Otay Mesa Commercial Port of Entry, ensuring our supply chains continue to function efficiently. We are so fortunate to have such a prosperous business community leading the way in so many binational sectors, and we thank the Otay Mesa Chamber of Commerce for its vital role in helping this business community thrive!
