As a precursor to the USMXECO, the U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue was created in 2013 by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Consejo Coordinador Empresarial to strengthen economic and commercial ties between the two countries. The CEO Dialogue convenes private sector leaders from the U.S. and Mexico to provide joint recommendations for the governments on priorities in the bilateral trade and investment relationship. The CEO Dialogue has served as the primary private sector vehicle for input into the U.S.-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue.
Members of the CEO Dialogue meet twice a year, once in each country. The purpose of the biannual meetings is to provoke critical thinking about the bilateral economic relationship; identify shared policy priorities; and provide effective engagement with U.S. and Mexican government officials at the highest levels.
