The governor is heading to Mexico, not for vacationing, but to bolster ties with our Southern Neighbor.

Brown says the trip will take place the last week of July to bolster ties with California's largest export market.  

During his State of the State address, the governor talked about the importance of getting countries such as Mexico to join the U.S. in reducing oil consumption.

"We started building those partnerships with other states and counties, like China, we'll go to Mexico next because California can't do it alone," Brown said. 

The governor will be joined by a delegation of California government, business, economic development, investment and policy leaders on the mission.  

The trip will focus on increasing direct investment in California, expanding bilateral economic and environmental cooperation and linking businesses in the state with new opportunities and partnerships.
