“The effects of a port in Sonora, Mexico would be an overall benefit to the Mexican and US economies with the state of Arizona seeing a great amount of potential revenues if chosen as a distribution hub for the goods. However, the public perception of such development may be a hindrance as politicians seek to promote the economic advantages while the “not in my backyard” attitudes of their constituents affect their reelection chances. In light of NAFTA and the need for economic stimulus by any means, it is my belief that Arizona will become a major transportation hub in the future with a direct link to the new ports in Sonora.”
