The governor of Baja California, Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda, led a Coordination Council Regarding Security Matters at Tijuana’s Second Military Zone, where she was accompanied by members of the Business Coordinator Council (CCE) of Tijuana to review the security situation in the state and have entrepreneurs work together in strategies to fight crime.
