Economic and Political Section
August 11, 2021

The Economic and Political Section works with the Mexican government and other partners to strengthen the U.S.-Mexico bilateral relationship by advocating for and advancing our shared interests.  The section works with all U.S. officials and partners to help carry out U.S. diplomacy’s global mission: to shape and sustain a peaceful, prosperous, just, and democratic world and foster conditions for stability and progress for the benefit of the American people and people everywhere.

The section observes, analyzes, and reports on the full range of economic and political developments in the states of Coahuila, Durango, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosí, and Zacatecas in order to inform U.S. policymakers about key events and conditions in Mexico.  Working closely with our Commerce Department colleagues, we also advocate on behalf of U.S. businesses, promote U.S. goods in the Mexican market, and identify and eliminate barriers to market access for U.S. companies.

Some of the issues the Economic and Political Section focuses on include security, trade and investment, economic development and shared prosperity, public finance, energy, the environment, the rule of law, human rights, trafficking in persons, civil society, democratic institutions, and working with both U.S. and Mexican partners to help reduce violence in communities.  Our shared border is our strength, and our job is to help keep it safe and prosperous
