About Us

Launched in 2010, the U.S.-Mexico Leadership Initiative (USMLI) convenes major stakeholders in the U.S. and Mexican economies who are firmly committed to enhancing the respective and collective competitiveness of our two nations. The USMLI seeks to make true economic partnership a reality between Mexico and the United States by making both countries more competitive in global markets; raising living standards for workers; ensuring the U.S.-Mexico border is the most modern, streamlined, and secure in the world; promoting the continent’s energy independence, while respecting our shared environment; and, enhancing inter-governmental cooperation. Through engagement with both the private and public sectors, the USMLI works to ensure that policymakers and legislators understand the importance of our countries’ economic ties, and to promote ways to optimize the relationship between our two nations.
