The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars seized the opportunity provided by simultaneous elections to convene a high-level retreat of preeminent political, business, academic, and media leaders from the two countries in March 2012 to focus on fresh ideas to take the relationship between the two countries to a new level.  From this retreat emerged A Stronger Future: Policy Recommendations for U.S.-Mexico Relations.  The report includes suggestions for enhancing regional competitiveness, new strategies to fight organized crime and strengthen public security, judicial reform in Mexico, reform of the U.S. immigration system, furthering educational exchanges between the two nations, a new vision for energy cooperation in Mexico, and developing new ports of entry to strengthen trade and security at the border.
