October 2014 - Opening the Gates of the Middle East

Put North America First

North America is home to almost five hundred million people living in three vibrant democracies. If the three North American countries deepen their integration and cooperation, they have the potential to again shape world affairs for generations to come, a new Council on Foreign Relations- sponsored report “North America: Time for a New Focus” concluded. The Independent Task Force report asserts that elevating and prioritizing the U.S.-Canada-Mexico relationship offers the best opportunity for strengthening the United States and its place in the world.

Opening the Gates of the Middle East

Over the last 20 years, Mexico has made a drastic transition from a relatively closed economy to one of the most open countries in the world. Apart from the ten free trade agreements (FTAs) that have already been implemented with 45 countries, including North, Central and South American countries, the European Union, Israel and Japan, the Government of Mexico is currently working to open the gates of the Middle East by signing FTAs with Turkey and Jordan.
