Calderon`s Fifth U.S. Visit in 2011


Calderon at the UN Mexican President Felipe Calderon recently made his fifth visit to the U.S. in calendar year 2011. (Here is my blog entry on the fourth visit).

 This fifth visit was a working trip to New York and Los Angeles.

 On September 19th, in New York City, Calderon addressed the Americas Society/Council of the Americas (AS/COA) in the Waldorf Astoria.

 On the 20th, Calderon participated in the inaugural session of the Clinton Global Initiative 2011. (The Clinton Global Initiative, says The Economist, is “an important part of the global elite’s calendar”).

The topic of the session in which Calderon participated was climate change.

 Calderon delivered the keynote address at the second session of the IBM Centennial Forum.

 And he attended the world premiere of the “Mexico, the Royal Tour”, a program hosted by Peter Greenberg in which he acts as a tourist guide to show some tourist attractions in Mexico. (Here is an article I wrote about “The Royal Tour”).

 On September 21st, in New York City, Calderon addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations. (See photo.)

 And, in Los Angeles, Calderon had “a meeting with members of the Mexican community”. The Mexican President said that “he would continue working to create a just and comprehensive migratory reform for the Mexicans who reside in the United States”.
