Carlos Sada, the undersecretary for North America traveled to the border region to participate in a meeting with Consuls of Mexico and Leaders from the United States of the West Coast –ClinBC- and other key personalities.
The meeting took place in Baja California and its goal was to continue strengthening ties between Mexico and the United States, as in the Mega region Cali-Baja. The invaluable support of the mayor of Ensenada, Marco Novelo; the mayor of Tijuana, Juan Manuel Gastélum and the mayor of Playas de Rosarito, Mirna Rincón, as well as the presence of the governor of Baja California, Francisco Vega were instrumental for the celebration of this historical event, showcasing a clear example of local collaboration that has regional and international impact.
The Undersecretary Sada made emphasis on the opportunity and relevance that this visit represents for Mexicans and Americans to experience firsthand the opportunities that the border region offers on the infrastructure and industrial sector, the economic development as well as the cultural offer and culinary sectors.
Cristina Garcia-Cepeda, Secretary of Culture of Mexico, participated at the Cultural Center of Tijuana (CECUT), highlighting the importance of the cultural diversity between both societies. She declared that this is an inclusive institution that has open its doors to binational communities and their visitors, echoing the collaboration between the cultural center and the cultural activities of the Mexican consuls based in the United States of America.
In the framework of the CLinBC delegation’s program, undersecretary Sada led a session with the Consuls of the United States of the West Coast (COCOCO), where the heads of the Mexican Consulates exchanged initiatives, opinions and shared good practices to improve the services offered to the Mexican community. He also reminded them to continue working to fulfil the objectives of the Mexican Government in the protection of the rights of the Mexican migrants in the United States.
The initiative of this first visit of Consuls of Mexico and US Leaders to Baja California is another example on how consulates build bridges that unite both of our countries and a new model of collaboration that favors the wellbeing of the citizens on both sides of the border. The Government of Mexico recognizes the effort made by the municipalities of Tijuana, Playas de Rosarito, Ensenada, the Conventions Tourism Committee of Tijuana (COTUCO) and the State of Baja California.
