    Gov. Doug Ducey is optimistic that trade between Arizona and Mexico will increase, despite the immigration crisis at Arizona's border.

    At a question and answer session Tuesday, alongside former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, he told members of the Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations that the discussion first needs to shift from Arizona's southern border to Mexico's southern border.

    "So much of this crisis is because of what's happening in Central and South America, and these are things we're going to need to engage in or we're never really going to be able to solve or mitigate this solution at the border," he said.

    When Mexico focuses on its own border, Ducey continued, U.S. and Mexican leaders should put politics aside and support each other with open communication and cooperation.

    He said he sees the value of trade between the two countries as a strong incentive toward peace and prosperity.

    Howie Fischer of Capitol Media Services was there at the meeting and joined The Show to talk about it.

    Governor Doug Ducey and former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl discussed Arizona’s international trade relationships at the 14th Annual International State of the State yesterday.

    “The responsible and sustainable growth in Arizona doesn’t just have its roots locally, it’s international,” Gov. Ducey said.

    He said two-way trade between Arizona and Mexico for 2018 increased 7.7 percent totaling $16.6 billion, and Arizona’s two-way trade with Canada increased 2.4 percent.

    “Arizona is proud to have exported over $22 billion dollars in goods all around the world last year,” he said.

    Building and maintaining strong relationships with the nation’s neighbors in Canada and Mexico impacts the economy, but it goes beyond that.
