Argentine President Alberto FernÃ¡ndez had not planned a trip to Mexico in this first semester. His arrival at the end of the month is a result of an invitation from AndrÃ©s Manuel LÃ³pez Obrador, which, according to the South American representative, has to do with the leader of Tabasco's intention of beginning to view Latin America.
Alberto Fernandez is the first in the list. However, LÃ³pez Obrador also expects Luis Arce to travel to Mexico, possibly in April. Then, if the election results are as expected, AndrÃ©s Arauz will follow in May with Bolivia and Ecuador on board.
This schedule is due to the fact that LÃ³pez Obrador has been, since he arrived at Palacio Nacional, pragmatic about his relationship with the United States. Such line of conduct detoured only when he received Evo Morales, whom within a few weeks was dispatched to Cuba.
LÃ³pez Obrador wants to start showing that the region is important to him and chooses representatives who understand and support his line of thought. The president likes the idea that neoliberalism is in a phase of retraction within the continent and wants to promote that idea with figures such as FernÃ¡ndez or Arce, whom he prefers over NicolÃ¡s Maduro or Daniel Ortega.
The Mexican president does not want a state visit with his Argentine peer, like the one the latter had weeks ago in Chile, when he traveled with a group of ministers. LÃ³pez Obrador prefers an eminently bilateral meeting with a strong symbolic case.
That is why FernÃ¡ndez will accompany LÃ³pez Obrador to Iguala in the state of Guerrero, to celebrate The Day of the Flag, at a key point in the Mexican independence process. Fernandez will then have two meetings with entrepreneurs, whose agenda of attendees at the moment is kept under secrecy.
Two activities are also planned, one with Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum and another with Chancellor Marcelo Ebrard.
FernÃ¡ndez will arrive in Mexico on February 23rd, with no clear date announced yet to return to Buenos Aires, but everything indicates it might be the 25th of this month for a more manageable agenda.
