The business leader expected to top the shortlist for President-elect Donald Trump’s ambassador to Mexico has launched a broad effort to promote stronger U.S.-Mexico ties and reassure leaders after Trump vowed unilateral action that would upend relations between the two countries, the Washington Post reports.
Al Zapanta, the head of the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce and chief executive of natural-gas development company Paz Resources, is launching what he calls the North American Working Group at a meeting of business leaders Friday in The Woodlands, Tex.
