      STORYLINE:

      The United States pledged 5.8 billion US dollars in aid and investment Tuesday for strengthening government and economic development in Central America, and another 4.8 billion US dollars in development aid for southern Mexico.

      The plan was announced by Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard in the Mexican capital.

      Ebrard said, “the commitments established here signify more than doubling foreign investment in southern Mexico starting in 2019.”

      Ebrard had previously suggested about 25 billion US dollars in US investment would be an appropriate figure for what Mexicans and Central Americans have dubbed “The Alliance for Prosperity” in the region.

      The US aid aims to promote better security conditions and job opportunities as part of a regional plan to allow Central Americans and Mexicans to remain in their countries and not have to emigrate.

      The combination of public and private investment for the stay-at-home effort does not require congressional approval, unlike US President Donald Trump’s signature project to stem illegal immigration – a border wall.

      The administration of newly inaugurated President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has said it is also interested in agricultural, forestry and tourism projects in southern Mexico, and the US said it will contribute to those efforts.

      Lopez Obrador, who took office on December 1, has sought to make development in that region a priority.
