Guest host Richard Dayoub of the Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce chats with Patrick Schaefer, the new executive director of the Hunt Institute for Global Competitiveness. The institute is located on the UTEP campus and collects and maps data on the Borderplex region, which consists of Southern New Mexico, West Texas, and Northern Chihuahua. The Paso del Norte trade route was a north-south and east-west trade route for centuries, and it remains so to this day. The Hunt Institute aims to find solutions to facilitate cooperation between the two nations.
