(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah Governor Mike Leavitt is in Mexico today, part of a trade mission to promote closer ties between Utah and Mexico.
Today and Tuesday, the governor, other state officials and business people will meet with Mexican counterparts -- including President Vincente Fox -- in an attempt to increase economic and educational ties.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports from Mexico City that Leavitt and the trade group will try to increase commerce between the state and Mexico.
He'll also be addressing the issue of immigration -- a relationship that Leavitt says requires a lot of understanding between the two.
