MEXICO CITY — The Mexican Council of International Affairs (Comexi, for its acronym in Spanish) met with the new U.S. ambassador, Roberta Jacobson, in order to address bilateral issues between the two countries.
Issues such as migration, environment, trade integration, education, empowerment of women and paradigms in the U.S. perception of Mexico, among others, were discussed at the meeting.
During the meeting they discussed how the countries of North America — Mexico, the United States and Canada — can face global challenges nowadays.
The council president, Jaime Zabludovsky, explained in a statement that “there are many issues that connect our countries and we need to discuss in order to provide ideas and solutions for a brighter future.”
The meeting is part of the “Diplomatic Tables” from Comexi, which are focused on bringing closer the opinions of the representatives from other countries in Mexico to the membership of the council, to strengthen knowledge and discussion of multilateral relations.
Before this meeting, another meeting with the ambassadors of New Zealand and France, Clare Ann Kelly and Maryse Bossière, respectively, was held.
The council said that the border between the U.S. and Mexico, which is 3,140 kilometers long, is the busiest in the world, with a million people and 300,000 vehicles crossing it daily.
Zabludovsky explained that Mexico is also the second largest trading partner of the country’s northern neighbor, by generating an exchange of nearly one million dollars per minute on trade and investment between the two nations, according to a report by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE, for its acronym in Spanish).
According to figures from the Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME, for its acronym in Spanish), more than 34 million Mexican nationals live in the U.S., representing a crucial challenge to be attended by the two countries.
