NAVA AGUIRRE, Karla María  y  CORDOVA BOJORQUEZ, Gustavo. Paradiplomacy and economic development in the Reynosa-McAllen cross-border region. Estud. front [online]. 2018, vol.19, e004. ISSN 2395-9134.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21670/ref.1804004.

Paradiplomacy is a new international participation phenomenon involving local governments and other non-state entities. This research aims at analyzing paradiplomacy and observing the economic development in the Reynosa-McAllen cross-border region after the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). A qualitative research method with a descriptive approach was used. The data collection instruments were a literature review and interviews. The findings indicate that outreach activities between Reynosa and McAllen respond mainly to the teamwork between the Municipal Government of Reynosa, the Tamaulipas State Government and the McAllen Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), which have increased investment and employment, thereby generating economic development in this cross-border region.

Palabras llave : paradiplomacy; local government; cross-border region; economic development.
