Christie to travel to Mexico next month


Gov. Christie is heading to Mexico next month on a trade and diplomatic mission, his office said today.

The governor will travel to Mexico from Sept. 3-5, said Christie’s communications director, Maria Comella. The New York Times first reported the trip.

According to the Times report, Christie will meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during the trip, which is focused on building economic ties between New Jersey and Mexico. The agenda will also include meetings with Mexican political officials and business executives, the report said.

The Times reported that the trip is being organized by Clifford Sobel, a former U.S. ambassador to Brazil, and Robert E. Grady, a former Bush administration official. Grady is chairman of the New Jersey State Investment Council.

The trip will be the first international trip of Christie's second term and comes as the governor weighs a possible presidential bid. In 2012, Christie traveled to Israel.
