U.S.-Mexico relations have been dominated for the past six years by efforts to address drug trafficking and organized crime-related violence. This was the right thing to do while violence spiked in Mexico, but with a new administration in office after the swearing in of President Enrique Peña Nieto over the weekend, the time has come to re-balance the bilateral relationship.

Mexico’s foreign secretary used her trip to Ottawa during an annual set of bilateral meetings to press for a trusted traveller program, and her presence was seen by observers as a positive step in continental relations.
Mexico’s Patricia Espinosa met with Foreign Minister John Baird and attended the Canada-Mexico Partnership meetings. The partnership, which was launched in 2004, gives the two countries the chance to have a broad review of what has been going on in the bilateral relationship, Ms. Espinosa said at a breakfast event on May 30.
“It’s a very useful instrument to make sure that our actions and the direction of our work is not lost in the everyday work of our administrations,” she said.
