In preparation for their upcoming meeting with the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, the heads of the Mexican Consular Network in the United States met with the Under Secretary for North America, Paulo Carreño, and the Ambassador of Mexico to the United States, Carlos Sada, today in Washington, D.C. to examine the relaunching of the work of Mexico’s diplomatic representations in the U.S. and their work to promote the contributions of the Mexican community in the United States.

The Under Secretary and the Ambassador presented the general strategy for the aforementioned relaunch and held an interactive dialogue with the Consuls, who enriched the meeting by adding the particular experiences they have had in their respective representations.

The Mexican representatives also held a series of meetings with members of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), a political advocacy group that is celebrating 110 years of work in the United States.

Representatives of the Jewish diaspora and the Mexican diplomats exchanged their experiences in the United States with the objective of identifying effective ways to support their diasporas.

While Consuls often hold regional meetings, this is the first meeting called by Secretary Ruiz Massieu in which all the Consuls will meet together.

The Secretary of Foreign Affairs will be the guest of honor and keynote speaker at the annual AJC dinner on Monday.

Mexico is the country with the largest consular network of any one nation in any other single country.
