Convocation 2.0 Report Presentation | Strengthening the U.S.-Mexico Relationship
Convocation is a program led by the U.S. Mexico Foundation and the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center that brings together more than a dozen former ambassadors from the United States to Mexico and from Mexico to the United States, to discuss key elements of the present and the future of the bilateral relationship.
In December 2021, thirteen former ambassadors and distinguished guests in the private sector and academia convened for three days of working sessions in Tequila, Jalisco. During these sessions, the former ambassadors discussed the areas of opportunity for the bilateral relationship including strategic alignment of North American economies, workforce development and labor mobility, public security, and soft power.
The recommendations from these discussions can be found in "Convocation 2.0 - The Report."
On May 16, 1:00pm-2:15pm EST, the Mexico Institute and the U.S. Mexico Foundation hosted a presentation of this report with Ambassador Arturo Sarukhán, Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne, Ambassador Gerónimo Gutiérrez, and Ambassador Martha Bárcena Coqui. The Ambassadors presented the recommendations from the report and discussed how bilateral cooperation can be furthered by learning from the insight of their colleagues.
