[ Imagine Brownsville United Brownsville Economic Plan BiNED Overview Economic Vision The Plan lays out a blueprint that leverages existing regional physical, natural, and human resources to transform our current passthrough, factor based economy toward an investment and innovation driven economy based on advanced manufacturing With a focus on: Integration and development of a selected number of traded clusters with greatest comparative advantage: Advanced Manufacturing Increasing competitiveness through collaboration Internal Collaboration External Regional and Border Collaboration - BiNED

    7. 7. [ Imagine Brownsville What is BiNED? BiNED Premise United Brownsville Economic Plan 1.If the declining trends in the socioeconomic conditions on the US/Mexico border remain unabated, they will lead to disruptive negative social and economic displacements of the region that will undermine the long term interests of both countries; including increased insecurity, instability and illegal immigration. BiNED Overview 2.The path to reversing the declining trends and avoiding serious dislocations is not by building more border walls; or by adding more boots on the ground; or by continuing unilaterally down the traditional path of our border pass-through economies, regardless of how much more efficient we can make our international crossings. 3.The path to a more secure and prosperous border region lies instead in creating the conditions necessary to foster an innovative, competitive, integrated and collaborative binational border economic development (BiNED) zone. A BiNED zone that captures a greater share of the economic development resurgence of nearshoring advanced manufacturing that is occurring in the US and even more so in the interior of Mexico. A Mexico that is forecast to become a major competitive driver for North America into the future especially as NAFTA 2.0 becomes a reality.
    8. 8. [ Imagine Brownsville What is BiNED? BiNED Zone Features United Brownsville Economic Plan BiNED Overview 1.The BiNED zone would encompass both sides of the border. It would gain competitive advantages by eliminating the physical and policy barriers associated with a demarcated border to the greatest practical and effective extent. 2.The frictionless BiNED zone would allow the strongest competitive advantages of each respective country to emerge (e.g., low energy costs and greater financial lending and infrastructure/logistics capacity on the US; and competitive labor markets and existing advanced manufacturing capacity on the Mexican side) and create a more competitive, secure and prosperous region than the one that exists under separate non- integrated regimes. 3.It’s a truism that innovation is the key to economic growth and that the research/engineering functions need to be collocated with manufacturing facilities in order for optimal innovation to occur. The reality is that there is no other place where you can better collocate the competitive labor markets and existing advanced manufacturing capacities of Mexico with the advanced research/engineering, financial/management and infrastructure/logistics capacities of the US than on the US/Mexico Border.
