On Friday, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Rand Beers joined Vice President Joe Biden and other U.S. officials in Mexico City, Mexico for the U.S.-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue.
“Strong international partnerships are critical to our global competitiveness as our countries and societies become more connected and dependent upon shared systems of transportation, commerce, and communications,” said Acting Secretary Beers. “We look forward to our continued partnership with the Mexican government as we work together to facilitate legitimate trade and travel while protecting our citizens."
During the High Level Economic Dialogue, Acting Secretary Beers, Vice President Biden and other U.S. officials met with Mexican officials to advance strategic economic and commercial priorities central to promoting mutual economic growth, job creation, and global competitiveness. The United States and Mexico work closely together to ensure a safe and secure border region, which is critical to both nations’ economic competitiveness and national security.
