Canada PM Trudeau to pay two-day official visit to Mexico

OTTAWA – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will pay an official visit to Mexico on October 12 and 13, the country’s foreign ministry said in a recent statement.

PM Trudeau reciprocates the visit made by President Enrique Peña Nieto to Canada in June 2016.

Both leaders will debate on competitiveness, entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as the strengthening of trade flows between the two nations, according to the statement.

In 2016, Canada was Mexico’s fourth largest trading partner with bilateral trade totaling over 20 billion dollars.

Over 96,000 Mexicans are currently living in Canada, the second largest community outside the United States.
