The Secretary of Foreign Affairs, José Antonio Meade Kuribreña, will pay a work visit to the cities of San Francisco and Sacramento on July 22 and 23, in order to strengthen political, economic, cultural and community ties.

During the two days, Secretary Meade will meet with the governor of California, Jerry Brown, with state legislators, and local officials. He will also hold meetings with academics, university officials, and businessmen from the technology sector, as well as with Mexican students participating in bilateral programs to promote the development of human capital by way of international exchange and programs in research and innovation.

Additionally, the Secretary will meet with leaders of the Mexican community in San Francisco and Sacramento and with agricultural workers in California. These activities demonstrate the commitment of the Mexican Government to Mexican communities abroad and celebrate their contributions to the two societies to whom they belong.
