From its early agricultural roots, McAllen has successfully transitioned into a key city in a major international trade region. Since the ratification of the North American Free Tread Agreement in 1994, and the designation of Free-Trade and Foreign-Trade Zones throughout the city, by some estimates, exports have increased nearly 90 percent as many new companies have established a manufacturing presence in the region. Incoming Mexican manufacturing facilities have had a major financial impact on the border economy, driving widespread business and employment opportunities.
McAllen and The Rio Grande Valley continue to work to realize their international trade potential with ongoing highway expansion projects, the addition of the Anzalduas International Bridge in Mission, Texas, and the construction of roadways and railways to connect with the Port of Brownsville, a deep-sea port used for cargo and fishing. McAllen and surrounding cities constitute one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the nation, benefiting from significant cross-border retail traffic from Northeastern Mexican cities, and tourism, which plays a significant role in the local economy as sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico continue to attract visitors.
