Mexico City, Mexico - Following meetings with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto and Secretary of Foreign Affairs José Antonio Meade Kuribreña on the first full day of the Governor’s Trade and Investment Mission to Mexico, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced that Mexico’s President has accepted his invitation to visit California.

The announcement follows the invitation Governor Brown extended last week when he met with Secretary Meade in Sacramento.

“California and Mexico share a rich history and strong cultural ties and we look forward to welcoming President Peña Nieto to the Golden State,” said Governor Brown.

The Governor first announced the Trade and Investment Mission to Mexico in his 2014 State of the State address and met with Mexican Consuls General from cities across California in March.

The Governor is joined on the Trade and Investment Mission to Mexico by a delegation of state legislators and senior administration officials. A delegation organized by the California Chamber of Commerce with the help of the California Foundation for Commerce and Education that includes approximately 90 business, economic development, investment and policy leaders from throughout California is also participating in the trade mission.
