Rio South Texas Economic Council


Two Countries. One Region. Many Choices.

The Rio South Texas area represents two countries, one region, with many excellent choices for global companies seeking access to markets in Mexico, and the U.S. South and Midwest.

The Rio South Texas Economic Council (RSTEC) is a public and private association of economic development interests within the four southernmost Texas counties—Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr and Willacy—formed to enhance knowledge of the area’s many assets; to foster the growth of the local economy; and to enhance the area’s competitiveness in order to attract capital investment and jobs.RSTEC partners identified the following regional economic development goals to guide the collaboration process:

  • Unify and coordinate regional marketing efforts.
  • Develop a strategy for economic development and tourism along opportunity corridors.
  • Optimize trade opportunities from cross-border economic activities.
  • Oversee regional economic development strategic planning and identify implementation strategies.
  • Provide a forum for discussion of pressing issues facing regional economic development.
  • Provide education and training for the purpose of strengthening community economic development efforts. 
RESTEC members are committed to working together to ensure a strong and vibrant Rio South Texas economy for years to come.
