Washington, D.C. June 27, 2016




Ambassador Carlos Manuel Sada presented his letter of credence, which recognizes his appointment as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Mexico to the United States of America, today to President Barack Obama.

During the ceremony in the White House, Ambassador Sada relayed President Enrique Peña Nieto’s Greetings to President Obama, as well as his determination and commitment to continue strengthening relations between the two countries. 

The Mexican diplomat has vast experience working for Mexico in the United States and building alliances with different actors in U.S. society at the federal, state and local levels, as well as in the public and private sectors.

During his career in public service, Ambassador Sada has headed several of the most important Mexican consulates in this country: San Antonio, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, and in each of those cities he dedicated a large part of his efforts to empowering Mexican communities and promoting and strengthening the image of our country.

In Washington, the Ambassador was previously the Head of the Section of Congressional Relations.

In his new position, Ambassador Sada has already begun implementing the work plan he presented to the Mexican Senate during his confirmation hearing. The plan involves, among other things: the reactivation of the consular network, empowering Mexican communities, strengthening relations with the Mexican diaspora, relations with the U.S. Congress and economic actors, deepening the economic relationship, a safe and modern border, security, cultural and educational diplomacy, and closely following the electoral process in the United States.
