Biden, Trudeau and AMLO promise more cooperation

Sensitive topics on the menu, for better American coordination. In Mexico, the leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico are meeting on Tuesday to find common ground. This so-called “three friends” summit should make it possible to deepen their economic cooperation and dialogue more on the climate and immigration, according to commitments disseminated by the White House.

Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau and Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador, known as AMLO, want to launch a trilateral discussion format on the supply of semiconductors, these strategic computer components most often imported from Asia, and launch an academic exchange system .

On the environment, they “recognize the urgency of taking rapid, coordinated and ambitious measures”. The three countries are committed to reducing methane emissions from waste and wastewater treatment by at least 15% by 2030, and want to halve food waste.

No announcement on immigration

On the most delicate subject, immigration, no really spectacular announcements. The three countries will in particular launch a common website providing information on the procedures and restrictions in force.

Beyond the official declarations of goodwill, this “summit of North American leaders”, relaunched by Joe Biden in 2021 after a five-year hiatus, will be an opportunity to discuss a certain number of contentious economic subjects.

Joe Biden and “AMLO” had their bilateral meeting on Monday, marked by a somewhat tense exchange. The Mexican head of state asked his counterpart to put an end to “disdain for Latin America”, to which the American president responded by highlighting the enormous sums spent by the United States for the benefit of the continent.
