Governor Jerry Brown has praised our relationship with Mexico ahead of a trade mission next week. But trade won't be the only topic.

"I think on any number of issues, the California-Mexico relationship has great potential," Brown said. 

The governor, with legislators and dozens of business owners in tow, will set off Sunday for a four day trip across the border.

He says he wants to strengthen a relationship that's responsible for a million dollars in trade each minute, but also address issues like immigration, coordinating student exchanges at the university level.

"I also want to collaborate with Mexico in pushing an intelligent climate-change agenda," Brown said. 

Brown says our neighbor will play a role in upcoming conferences that determine if countries "get serious" about global warming.
