SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. and California officials met with Mexico’s Foreign Affairs Secretary Jose Antonio Meade Kuribreña and other Mexican government leaders today in Sacramento following a luncheon hosted by the California Chamber of Commerce.
Today’s meeting was held ahead of the Governor’s Trade and Investment Mission to Mexico next week. The Governor will be joined by state legislators, senior administration officials and a delegation of approximately 90 business, economic development, investment and policy leaders from throughout California organized by the California Chamber of Commerce with the help of the California Foundation for Commerce and Education. The trip will focus on helping boost bilateral trade and investment opportunities between the two neighbors and expanding environmental and economic cooperation.
Governor Brown met with Mexican Consuls General from cities across California in March and today announced that he has invited Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to meet later this year in California to build on the partnership forged during the trade mission.
