CARSON CITY (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval is fresh off his trade mission to Mexico.

A group of southern Nevada business owners got to tag-along.

News 3’s Mackenzie Warren spoke with one of those local movers and shakers. They were initially skeptical about the trip.

One local real estate developer News 3 spoke to at first wondered what can a trip to Mexico really mean for Nevadans and his company?

Turns out a lot.

It's the governor's third overseas trade mission and one local business owner sees the potential dollars signs and opportunity already.

“Well I was a bit skeptical at first,” said president and COO of the Molasky Group of Companies.

Governor Brian Sandoval signed a memorandum of understanding with Mexican Governor Eruviel Avila. The two promising Nevada and Mexico will work together more.

So what does this photo opportunity mean to the every-day Nevadan?

“I’ll tell you why because export economies are healthiest economies in the world. Those are economies that are producing more than are consuming,” Molasky said.

The idea was to connect more Nevada manufactures with viable Mexican distribution companies.
Mexico and Nevada already swap business in excess of $700 million every year.

Rich Worthington had eight meetings in Mexico-- to learn the country has a need his Nevada company can fulfill.

“Mexico City has a 25,000 bed deficit in needed prison beds and jail beds--that's what my company does,” Molasky said.

Worthington realizing a state does not have to share a border to share the wealth.

“It was an amazing trip. It was an eye-opener with a tremendous amount of business opportunities especially companies like mine,” Molasky said.

And though the immediate impact of Nevada’s Mexican trade mission is to-be-determined:

Every little bit helps when you're trying to sell Nevada and its companies,” Molasky said.

Mexico is Nevada’s fifth largest export-import country. Worthington thinks he just might have gotten a business deal out of it.

The focus wasn't only on public-private partnerships.
