Sembrando Oportunidades

Speeches Shim

In December 2021, the United States and Mexico announced Sembrando Oportunidades, a new bilateral framework for development cooperation to address the root causes of migration from Central America. Under this framework, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Mexican Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AMEXCID) will coordinate development resources and expertise to support citizens of Northern Central America in building prosperous futures in their home communities.

This collaboration builds on a long history of partnership. Mexico and the United States share a 2,000 mile border, are economically interdependent, and confront joint security challenges. These enduring linkages make Mexico a unique partner in areas of mutual interests, such as addressing the root causes of irregular migration.
