  • I had the pleasure today of meeting with Mexico’s Secretary of Agriculture & Rural Development Victor Villalobos. Mexico is not only a key trading partner, but also an important collaborator as we address climate change and food security.
  • Thank you mclaudebibeau for the productive meeting. I look forward to working with you on climate smart food and forestry practices and delivering science-based solutions to help mitigate and reduce climate change.
