President Barack Obama will visit Mexico and Costa Rica during the first week of May to discuss economic, immigration, and trade issues.
White House and Mexican officials said Obama plans to meet with Mexican President Pena Nieto. The two leaders spoke by telephone today.
“The agenda between both countries is broad and directly affects both societies,” said a statement released by the Mexican foreign ministry. “During the visit, competitiveness, education and innovation will be addressed, as well as border infrastructure, trade, immigration and citizen security, among other issues of shared interest.”
