Secretary Ross in Mexico: CDFA & SADER sign MOU on Agricultural Cooperation

CDFA Secretary Karen Ross (left) signed the MOU on agricultural cooperation with California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis and Victor Manuel Villalobos Arámbula, Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of the United Mexican States (SADER).

Today, our California Trade Mission to Mexico concluded with a meeting with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of the United Mexican States (SADER). The meeting provided the opportunity for CDFA and SADER to renew our ongoing partnership with a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) focusing on climate smart agriculture, plant/animal health and international collaboration.

It was truly a privilege to work with Secretary Villalobos and his team in developing a proactive work plan to further agricultural sustainability which we be implemented over the coming months.

This has been a great trip that reinforces the strong connections, partnerships and business opportunities that California and Mexico share – I look forward to our continued work and friendship.

I also thank Lieutenant Governor Kounalakis for her leadership and representation of California on the international stage.
