Mexico City, Mexico

U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson on March 20 wrapped up a two-day trip to Mexico where he met with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and other senior Mexican officials to discuss the partnership between the United States and Mexico to ensure a safe and secure border region — an element critical to both nations’ economic competitiveness and national security.

Johnson (above left) joined Mexico’s secretary of finance and public credit, Luis Videgaray Caso (above right), to sign an updated Declaration of Principles Concerning Bilateral Strategic Plan Initiatives, which provides a guiding framework under which both nations can implement binational programs related to customs, trade facilitation and the sharing of information.

“These efforts aren’t happening in a vacuum,” Johnson said at the signing ceremony. “What we are doing today supports the work of the 21st Century Border process. It feeds into the High Level Economic Dialogue. And it is consistent with the vision our presidents set forth at the North American Leaders Summit.”
