The United States and Mexico have strong social, cultural and economic ties; common security concerns; and a shared border. Mexico, as an upper middle income country with a high level of institutional capacity, is also a strong development partner for the United States.
While Mexico is a modern democracy with a thriving economy, challenges related to crime and violence, rule of law, human rights, climate change, economic competitiveness, and workforce development remain. To address these challenges, USAID works with a broad array of public, private and non-governmental partners to support Mexican initiatives and priorities.
