As specified in a United States/Mexico Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed on April 29, 1994, a Joint Working Committee (JWC) was designated to coordinate the planning and programming of intermodal projects along the border. The MOU recognized that the long term success of cooperative project development along the border requires coordinated planning and programming processes. The JWC is comprised of representatives from the 6 border states in Mexico and the 4 U.S. border states; and the Federal governments in both countries, including the U.S. State Department and the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Relations. Through meetings of the JWC, a comprehensive planning study was initiated to look at conditions along the border. The completed reports from this study are on this CD-ROM in both English and Spanish. They are presented as the reports of the following tasks: Task 1 - Annotated Bibliography - U.S. and Mexican Documents; Task 2 - Inventory of Existing and Programmed Binational Transportation Facilities - Summary, U.S. Inventory of Existing and Programmed Binational Transportation Facilities, and Mexican Inventory of Existing and Programmed Binational Transportation Facilities; Task 3 - Inventory of Selected Port of Entry Systems on the U.S.-Mexican Border; Task 3.1 - Description of Commercial Motor Vehicle Trade Flow Process; Task 4 - The U.S. Transportation Planning and Programming Processes, and The Transportation Planning and Programming Processes in Mexico; (no Task 5 report); Task 6 - Analysis of Public and Private Investment Programs in Mexico and the United States; (no Task 7 report); Task 8 - Current Trade and Passenger Flow Data; Task 9 - Port of Entry Case Studies; Task 10 - Economic Impacts of U.S.-Mexico Binational Trade, and Case Study Appendix; Task 11 - Changes in U.S. and Mexican Cross Border Trade Flows by Land Transportation Systems; Task 12 - Evaluation of U.S. and Mexican Border Area Capabilities to Forecast Expanding Trade; Task 13 - Estimating Border Crossing Utility; Task 14 - Methodologies for Developing Estimates of Costs and Benefits for Assessing Transportation Impacts of U.S.-Mexican Trade; (no Task 15 or 16 reports); Task 17 - Binational Data Bank; (no Task number for this report) Joint Working Committee Transition Plan; and Phase IV - Continuing Transportation Planning and Programming.
