BROWNSVILLE - The City of Brownsville is the newest member of the Rio South Texas Economic Council (RSTEC).

“RSTEC is bringing the Rio Grande Valley together when it comes to economic development with cities, chambers of commerce, economic development corporations and workforce boards among others, joining hands across county lines to promote the region for investment and jobs,” said RSTEC’s Executive Director Alma Puente Colleli.

“The City of Brownsville is very excited about working regionally in an effort to leverage our collective resources to create a booming regional economy,” said Brownsville City Commissioner Deborah Portillo.

“Projects such as Metro Connect, the new University of Texas RGV and the Cross Valley Transmission Lines are great examples of regionalism at its best,” said Portillo. “Joining RSTEC provides us with more opportunities to collaborate across the region and position ourselves as the gateway to the Americas.”

The Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation and the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce also joined RSTEC. “Brownsville and the Valley are a mecca for international trade and logistics,” said Maria Hall Joiner the Brownsville Chamber President and CEO.
