About Us/Sobre Nosotros

Welcome to the 4FrontED region, a local leader-led effort focusing on economic development, tourism and education in the binational megaregion encompassing the United States’ southwest corner and Mexico’s northeast communities near the border. 4FrontED’s economic engine is powered by innovation, collaboration, education, industry and ethical values. 4FrontED works to foster private and public sector relationships locally on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border to strengthen and further propel economic growth, and to make a global impact with leaders at the state, federal and international levels. Our local leaders work side-by-side with many partners in this 4FrontED effort with a shared vision of prosperity, by providing resources to entrepreneurs and innovators, and to our current and future workers.

4FrontED was established in 2014 by a group of mayors, leaders and county supervisors from municipalities on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border in the region that includes communities from Arizona, Baja California, California, and Sonora. Together, the leaders agreed to unite, collaborate, communicate and boost binational efforts on both sides of the border and to propel the megaregion to the global forefront. Since its inception, 4FrontED focuses on three foundational tracks of focus: economic development and job growth, tourism, and education. It is inclusive of Yuma County, the City of Yuma, the City of Somerton, the City of San Luis, the Town of Wellton, the Cocopah and Indian Tribes, the City of San Luis Rio Colorado, and many partner agencies who have helped elevate the 4FrontED vision, and who join us in striving to achieve excellence. It is the coming together and powerful impact of four states in two nations, united as one, that propels 4FrontED to reach propensities as the strongest binational region.
