SAN DIEGO.- California Governor Jerry Brown and Baja California Governor Kiko Vega agreed on Saturday to strengthen their binational work and the good relationship between both states, who share one of the most important economic regions in the world.

This was the first encounter between the two heads of state, reaffirming both of their governments willingness to work cooperatively on issues of common interest that would benefit residents of both state, especially when it comes to border wait times, the environment, economic development, education, health and cross-border security.

The Baja and California governors understood the need of improving ties between officials on both sides of the border, and agreed also to establish work meetings that would, in a timely manner, keep track of these and other issues that have a binational impact.

"We had a very positive meeting, in which we reaffirmed our willingness and interest to work together and to face this issues of great importance for all of us who live in this region comprised of the states of California and Baja California", signaled governor Kiko Vega.

Finally, the Baja California governor was confident that this would be the first of many meetings with his California counterpart, to whom he invited for an official visit to Baja.
