GREENSPOINT – Vicente Fox, Ex-president of Mexico visited Greenspoint area last Thursday, February 3, 2011 to support expansion of small mexican companies such as Contact Line here in Houston.
Fox visited Contact Line, a new Mexican-owned call center in Greenspoint’s Hispanic Business Center located at the 1200 block of Northborough Drive.
“The commitment of Centro Fox is to build bridges between two, or better say three great nations: Canada, United States and Mexico decided to associate, we are neighbors and we are friends and through NAFTA we are comming with this chapter. Mexico imports products and services more than or equally to France, Germany, Italy and Brittany do together. We are a solid partner of this great nation, and we account for hundres of thousands, millions of jobs with US citizens through our imports,” said Vicente Fox, Ex-president of Mexico.
“The dream of Mexican entrepreneurs is looking for opportunities in jobs and Alejandro has that vision, Alejandro has that wisdom to put together the energy, the resources from Mexico and the United States to create those opportunities,” said Fox.
Alejandro Del Valle is the CEO of the Business Hispanic Center and owner of Contact Line.
“As the Mexico’s ecomony grows, more companies are expanding outside their border. At the Greenspoint District is positioning itself to become a magnet for international and Mexican investment,” said Jack Drake, president of Greenpoint District.
Jack Drake stated that they are partner with Mr. Del Valle.
Mr. Del Valle is the creator of the Business Hispanic Center and his plan is to help Mexican companies to get installed in the United States. The plan is to “bring 300 entrepreneurs who are going to generate employment, will pay taxes, and will generate health, but they also want to sell their products in this country,” said Del Valle. “We now have a compromise with the District and the city for the help they have provided, and with ex-president Vicente Fox to promote small business as he as always done.”
