ANNOUNCING SEMANA MEXICANA ~~~
A WEEK OF EVENTS, SEPTEMBER 13- 20, 2002
Semana Mexicana 2002 is the official kick off and welcoming celebration hosted by the City of Kansas City, Missouri and the KCMO - Mexico Business Development Office, Hispanic service organization community sponsors and business sponsors for the Mexican Consulate Complex. The relocation of the Mexican Consulate, the launch of Trade Offices for the cities of Guadalajara and Monterrey and the establishment of the KCMO - Mexico Business Development Office position Kansas City as an international economic force. The impact is a boon for local businesses and service organizations as well.
The citywide events of Semana Mexicana promise a week of celebration, diverse programs and business development opportunities like no other in Kansas City. The Kansas City and Midwest region will learn more about the Consulate, recent economic agreements with Mexico and Hispanic organizations as well as experience the culture and spirit of Kansas City's Hispanic heritage.
The series of events offered during Semana Mexicana recognize the official Mexican consulate complex established in The United States in Kansas City along with local, national and international programs. Key service organizations, businesses and community partners join with international dignitaries and business leaders during the week of events showcasing and solidifying commitments to social and economic opportunities.
