In an important symbol of enduring friendship with Mexico, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Earl Anthony Wayne dedicated the new United States Consulate General facility in Tijuana on Friday. Mayor of Tijuana Carlos Bustamante, Governor of Baja California Jose Guadalupe Osuna Millan, U.S. Consul General Steven Kashkett, Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Janice Jacobs, and Leo Hession Managing Director for Operations at the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Situated on a 10-acre site in the Mesa de Otay neighborhood, the multi-building complex provides approximately 165 consulate employees with a state-of-the-art workspace.
The facility is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council for certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) green building rating system.
