Conference notable for what not discussed
LAS CROCKS. N M (.AP) The International Conference of I S Mexico Border Governors was as notable for what the governors didn t say as for what they did the governors, who met Friday on the New Mexico State University campus, did not address pollution immigration or drug trafficking in any detail A short communique issued at the end ot the meeting called for gover nors to begin a campaign to rally sup port for maquiladoras Mexican factories in which I S components are assembled by low paid workers in Mexico, then shipped to the United States for distribution About I.HH) maquiladoras employing 300,000 people have been established rn the last 20 years Most maquilas. also called twin plants lie near the border Texas Gov Bill Clements started the pro maquiladora initiative early “The maquiladora industry is good for Texas, good for the I nited States, good for Mexico " he said The ma quiladora program is probably the best kept industrial secret in the United States "
Gov Rodolfo Felix Valdes of Sonora added that maquiladoras ex pand the economy on both sides of the border
“Twenty years ago when the ma quiladora industry started in Nogales Sonora its bister city of
Nogales. Ariz., had one bank."
\ aides said “In the last 20 years at least five more banks have been established in Nogales, Ari/ Ma quiladoras) are of mutual interest for all the states that make up the border strip."
The governors of all IO states along that border strip California. Arizona. New Mexico. Texas Baja California Norte. Sonora. Chihuahua. Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas were present at the conference The meeting’s only substantial agreement that did not involve ma quiladoras concerned exchange of research between Texas AAM University and the Autonomous University of Tamaulipas The schools will work together to devise* a w ay to breed shrimp in iresh water for commercial purposes Clements said Clements was alone among the four U S and six Mexican border governors to publicly express dissatisfaction with the limited scope of the meeting “Theres been a lot of discussions of the maquiladora program but we have environmental problems and economic problems and drug pro blems " the governor said Clements and Arizona Gov Fvan Mecham U>th said they would Ilk** drug trafficking to appear on the agenda at a meeting tentative!!
scheduled for next year in Saltillo, the capital of the Mexican border state of Coahuilla.
But Clements said he did not have high hopes that drugs would appear on th** agenda because the Mexican government considers drugs to tx* on Iv a federal, not a state or local, pro blem
New Mexico Gov Garrey Car ruthers said the governors would try to meet next year, even though both countries are holding presidential elections in 1988
The governors compiled a preliminary list of subjects to tx* discussed at the Saltillo meeting Chief among them were economic development, international trade and environmental issues
The Mexican governors made it clear that job creation and economic development will remain the coun try s top priority for the forseeable future
During testimony by Alex Good director general of the U S Foreign Commerce Service in the Commerce iH'partment several Mexican gover rxirs expressed concern that a rexes sion in the United States could have
disastrous results on the maquiladora dependent border They said they were even more worried about protectionism in light of comments from union leaders and some members of Congress that ma quiladoras rob C S citizens of jobs Gov Jorge Trevino Martinez of Nuevo I .eon asked Good to lobby Con gross on the benefits of ma quiladoras
I know in Texas they don't worry atxmt losing jobs to maquiladoras," he said "Tell them < in Congress that there is nothing to be afraid of "
C S corporations are not the only ones to set up twin plants in Mexico Japan has built several, mostly In Baja California Norte Critics haw charged that the Japanese set up the plants just to make their trade surplus with the United States look lower because Japanese com ponents assembled in Mexico and sold in the United States are counted as Mexican imports
Based upon the information I have at this time I certainly would not tx* concerned about that issue California Gov George Deukniejian said
jockeys at the station With the music Buchner blends informa lessons aUiut the German way of life and gives information atsiut events in town and about sights to see here in both the German and Knglisf languages XII things having to de with the German culture Buchite! said
The local radio station had taken the German show oil the air and had been wanting to eventually return it At the same time Buchner was thinking that New Braunfels should have a show reflecting its heritage I just heard if on the sidelines that the other show was off the air and it occurred to me that in a town that is German that attracts tourists because it is so German I thought it would tx* nice for the tourists in town if they want some of tile German am blanc* she said It makes the city more interesting What would New Braunfels tx* without its Germ,ii heritage’'
Buchner said tin* show went on the air after a year of negotiating with the station manager Bob McDonald but the result has been worth the wait Along with playing traditional waltzes and polkas and music known around the world Buchner also play s country and western German sty Ie pop music and gives air time to lo* a. bands such as The Little Dutchmen and < )ma and the < HmiDahs
