Stanton also took the opportunity to meet with the counselor of the governor on education, an issue that the mayor will seek aprofundir during his second term.
“We discussed opportunities for educational exchanges in the future,” added Stanton. “We have many students going abroad to study. But there are many who go to Mexico.”
Stanton said that such exchanges are a good opportunity to cooperate more.
“It is a responsibility of both Mexico, and the United States, especially Arizona, to promote students to spend more time in Mexico. And there are also many students from Mexico who do not spend time in Arizona, so that benefits us our two economies, “Stanton said.
Ducey was not the only US governor present. Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico also attended the ceremony in Hersmosillo.
