Here is a look at a creative bid from New Mexico for an Amazon HQ2. The bid addresses PSA core elements of a great learning experience such as capturing the learning imagination, creating a bi-national learning community, and understanding how the border region is an important part of the larger Amazon cuisine.
Among the 238 bids to Amazon for their HQ2 is a creative one from New Mexico. Two economic development groups, working with the state’s government, is proposing Amazon build its headquarters not in one city — but in three on the United States-Mexico border.
The bid calls for a bi-national campus that would span areas of Juarez, Mexico; El Paso, Texas; and Las Cruces, New Mexico. Called HQ2Countries, it’s a joint proposal from the Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance and the Border Industrial Association, nonprofits based in New Mexico.
“We believe we have submitted to Amazon, not only a unique and bold proposal, but one that simultaneously meets the needs of the population, talent attraction, infrastructure, and quality of life requirements of the RFP,” Davin Lopez, CEO of the Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance, told Business Insider.
