1 Conference Report Mexico Summit 2013

2 Bringing the future leaders of the United States and Mexico together. The most enriching part of this experience was getting to meet all these different individuals that came from different places and studied things very different from me, yet our interests were still connected. We want to work together for a better Mexico, and for a better USA. Arturo Cardenas FoCUS Delegates 2013

4 30 YOUNG LEADERS Before FoCUS, when I wanted to learn about a specific aspect of the U.S.-Mexican relationship, I would go to Google. Now I also talk to the friends I've made in both countries. - Joe Katz This experience was life changing for me because I was exposed to so much in so little time... I experienced the power and enriching effect that collaboration has firsthand. - Daisy Gonzalez COOPERATION UNDERSTANDING SOLIDARITY

5 Bienvenidos The U.S.-Mexico relationship is among the most important and complex bilateral relationships in the world. Both countries share a 2,000-mile long border; over one million people cross this border every day; and bilateral trade adds to more than 300 billion dollars a year. Yet the connection between the United States and Mexico extends beyond economics to a deep historical and cultural origin that binds both countries together. Unfortunately, despite the importance of this partnership, most citizens in both countries are ignorant or misinformed about the common problems and opportunities that exist just across the river. We are here to build a bridge. FoCUS is motivated by the imperative need for dialogue between both countries, and emerges in response to the lack of opportunities at Mexican and American universities to facilitate this exchange. We hope to influence the dynamics of higher education exchange by bringing together a group of leading students from both countries. Our goal is not only to discuss and create proposals, but to also carry them forward. We are not only envisioning the future of U.S.-Mexico relations, we are determined to see that vision come true. We are here honored to share the first milestone of this journey. From April , thirty students across both countries came together in a historical gathering in Mexico City. The inaugural FoCUS Summit is the beginning of a new stage of collaboration between the young generations across the United States and Mexico. In the years to come, we hope to expand our network and continue to awaken the consciousness of students about their potential for creating change, and the realization that they have a partner and a friend just across the river. We very much hope you will join us in this journey. Sincerely, Jorge Olarte Blanco Co-founder and President FoCUS-Stanford Alejandro Navarro Gómez Co-founder and President FoCUS-ITAM 1

6 About Us The Forum for Cooperation, Understanding and Solidarity (FoCUS) is a student initiative dedicated to promoting positive U.S.-Mexico relations by fostering communication and mutual understanding among future leaders of the United States and Mexico. Our goal is to create a network of students who are already addressing social, political, economic or technological issues in innovative ways; and to bring them together to discuss and create proposals with the potential to influence bilateral affairs. It is by assembling a group of young leaders that FoCUS believes the United States and Mexico can overcome challenges in a cooperative environment. FoCUS is product of the collaborative effort of students at Stanford University and at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). Through this partnership, students from both universities are attempting to develop and strengthen a network of young leaders committed to improving the academic exchange between United States and Mexico. Framework Each year, FoCUS invites 30 outstanding students from the United States and Mexico to become our Delegates. This group benefits from a range of academic and cultural opportunities as they work on collaborative projects in preparation for the biannual FoCUS Summit, which brings all Delegates together at Stanford and ITAM. Delegates from both countries are selected across different universities on an application basis. We seek passionate people between the ages of 18 to 28 who show a potential to shape U.S.-Mexico relations as future leaders in a range of careers including academia, government, journalism and business. 2

7 The relationship between our nations must be defined not by the threats we face but by the prosperity and opportunity we can create together... Just imagine how much the students of our two countries could do together and learn from each other. - President Barack Obama in Mexico City Activities Delegates are part of FoCUS for a full year, beginning in January after they have been notified of their acceptance, until November after the closing conference at Stanford. Throughout the year, Delegates will participate on a series of FoCUS initiatives, which include: FoCUS Summit The cornerstone of FoCUS s efforts is a 4-day summit held twice a year: the inaugural conference at ITAM in early spring and the closing conference at Stanford in the fall. During the summit, students will interact with current leaders and experts, while playing key roles in round-table discussions and workshops addressing the most pressing issues in U.S.-Mexico relation. The unique two-part conference model will expose Delegates to the realities of each other s home countries and push them to broaden their horizons as they work together. Furthermore, they will have the chance to share their ideas, experiences, and perspectives, and collaborate on drafting proposals that will be shared with policymakers and business leaders from both countries. Collaborative Project FoCUS encourages and supports collaborative work done in teams of students from both countries. These projects focus on a specific topic chosen by the delegates, and can take the form of either academic research, policy evaluation/proposal, community outreach, or technological innovation. An interdisciplinary and innovative approach is highly encouraged. Speakers and Online Events In addition to our capstone summit, FoCUS hosts a variety of public speakers throughout the year at Stanford and ITAM to encourage ongoing discussions and debate about the U.S.-Mexico relationship. Such events are broadcasted online and open to the whole community. FoCUS also hosts regular online forums where our delegates are able to ask questions and discuss with current leaders and experts. 3

8 Mexico Summit 2013 From April 2-6 th 2013, FoCUS hosted its Inaugural Summit at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City. During this 4-day forum, Delegates had the opportunity to meet and discuss with some of the most important players of the bilateral relationship. Amongst the most prominent speakers were Ildefonso Guajardo, Secretary of Economy of Mexico, Anthony Wayne, Ambassador of the United States to Mexico, and Juan José Suárez Coppel, Former CEO of Pemex. Throughout a series of lectures and roundtable discussions, participants had the chance to listen, question, and share their vision about the current state and future of both countries. In addition, delegates engaged in deep discussions during workshops designed to foster creativity and collaboration between participants. Every delegate was so open and energetic to share his/her thoughts and experience that we could cover many topics and still put them down to earth into questions and projects. Javier Arreola 4

9 I was honestly expecting everyone to be a political science major or a law school student, but I was pleasantly surprised to be able to discuss immigration and security issues under a biological or scientific lens. - Omar de los Santos Energy Education Economy Security This year s summit focused on the key four areas that are most likely to play a central role in the relationship during the next 20 years. These pillars include: Energy, Economy, Education, and Security. What role will oil, natural gas and renewable sources play in our energy future? What will be the impact of Energy Reform? How can we improve technological cooperation and competitiveness? Should we modify NAFTA? How can we encourage educational exchange? How can we improve the safety and individual rights for citizens in both countries? What is the future of North America as a block? These were amongst the many issues that were discussed. 5

11 Young leaders getting together helping to define what the main issues are and what the solutions are to those issues... We need this kind of exchanges, we need to get to know each other. - Ambassador Anthony Wayne Travel Experience Besides discussions and activities at ITAM campus, Delegates also had the chance to visit many of Mexico City s most important landmarks such as the National Palace, The General Congress of the United Mexican States, Torre Mayor, Microsoft Headquarters in Santa Fe, and Coyoacan. At FoCUS we firmly believe that there is no better way to understand a country than to travel to it and get fully immersed in its culture, food, and people. What s next? During their time in Mexico, Delegates teamed up in groups according to their main area of interest, and each will be working on a collaborative project with the aid of mentors and support from FoCUS. These projects range from promoting sustainable development and energy solutions to improving the entrepreneurial ecosystem and redesigning the Merida Initiative. Delegates will present their work to relevant actors during the Closing Summit at Stanford University next fall. Our goal is to promote the best initiatives and share them with leaders from government, academia, and business in both countries. Closing Summit at Stanford University November 5-9,
