    Government officials from Central America and Mexico gathered in Costa Rica this week to discuss strengthening trade and strategies on the “war on drugs,” which is also a focus for the regional Central American Integration System (SICA) summit with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on February 19-20.

    On Feb. 19, 2013, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto will arrive in Costa Rica and participate in the summit of the Central American Integration System (SICA).

    Also in attendance are officials from the Central American Bank of Economic Integration, the Inter-American Development Bank and the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the secretary general of SICA.
