The U.S.-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue (HLED) announced by Presidents Barack Obama and Enrique Peña Nieto in May 2013 focuses on advancing strategic economic and commercial priorities which are central to promoting mutual economic growth, job creation, and global competitiveness for Mexico and the United States.

The HLED meets annually at the cabinet level, and builds on and promotes  sustained progress in a range of existing successful bilateral dialogues and working groups.  Mexico and the United States have developed a work plan laying out potential areas for cooperation under three broad pillars including:  promoting competitiveness and connectivity; fostering economic growth, productivity, entrepreneurship, and innovation; and partnering for regional and global leadership.
