U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker today joined President Barack Obama and the U.S. delegation to the North American Leaders Summit in Toluca, Mexico. The trilateral meeting between the Presidents of the United States and Mexico and the Prime Minister of Canada is an opportunity for the three leaders to discuss and make progress on their vision for a prosperous and secure future for the people of all three nations.
"The North American Leaders Summit is yet another opportunity to work closely with our friends in Mexico and Canada, build upon the strength of our relationships and move forward with new initiatives to promote the competitiveness of the North American platform in the global economy," said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. "Our three nations benefit from a robust trade relationship and a strong free trade agreement, our economies are deeply intertwined, our supply chains are integrated, and we invest in one another. At the Department of Commerce, we work with Mexico and Canada on ways government can make it easier for our countries and our companies to do business together, which is good for all of our economies and our people.
