Utah Gov. Huntsman to visit Fox in economic-intensive trek to Mexico in July

Next month, Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. will take his first foreign trip as governor — to Mexico, where he plans to extend a personal invitation to President Vicente Fox to visit Utah in September.

Huntsman announced the four-day trip on Friday during his monthly press conference with representatives of Utah’s minority media outlets. He said he will take along his senior adviser for economic development, Chris Roybal.

"It will be a quick visit, but I’m delighted that we heard yesterday from the Mexican government that President Fox has confirmed the meeting," the governor said. "I also hope we can offer a reciprocal meeting here in Utah sometime in the fall, in late September."

During the trip, set for July 11-15, Huntsman said he is also scheduled to meet with several other Mexican officials, including the secretary of the economy and the minister of travel and tourism, as well as the U.S. ambassador to Mexico.
