President Barack Obama, in Los Cabos Mexico for the G-20 summit, on Monday invited Mexico to join an expanding Asia-Pacific free trade pact.
The United States and the other eight member countries have invited Mexico to join Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations.
“We are part of that network of nations that are growing and dynamic, and for us now to be able to create a high standard trade agreement that further increases job opportunities, commercial opportunities, investment opportunities, I think will benefit citizens in both our countries,” President Obama told reporters at a joint press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon following their meeting.
Mexico, America’s second largest export market, had expressed interest in joining the TPP last November.
