California and Baja are Merging to Become Cali-Baja!! This is a must read article by the N.Y. Times If you are planing on doing business in Baja. See why Baja is going to become a "Global Powerhouse For Commercial Growth"

The area is formally known as the Cali Baja Bi-National Mega-Region, covering roughly 27,000 square miles.
