The WMTA provides you with an English-speaking connection to what is going on in our industry and our region. We design our meetings and events to provide a forum for exchanging information, making contacts, and building relationships among peers, government officials, supporting industries, and other trade and industry groups.
The WMTA serves as your voice in the Maquila industry in the United States and across the border in Mexico through our close ties with our partner in Baja California.

The Western Maquiladora Trade Association aims to help keep the San Diego/Northern Baja area maquiladora operators and related businesses informed about U.S. and Mexico changes that may affect the industry and their operations. Our association neither strives to promote itself nor the maquiladora industry.
