Delegations from both countries reached agreements to support rural workers, infrastructure projects, and labor reforms in Mexico and Central America.
On Wednesday, Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) and U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris signed cooperation agreements to fight irregular migration and boost development in Central America.
The agreements include the creation of a specialized group to fight human smuggling networks, resolve missing person cases, and assist Mexican workers.
In this sense, the U.S. will provide forensic training to law enforcement agencies such as the National Search Commission to help Mexican authorities to resolve over 82,000 cases of missing persons.
Furthermore, loans will be provided for affordable housing, infrastructure projects, and support to rural workers in southern Mexico.
