Mr. Hollande is visiting Mexico at the invitation of President Enrique Pe?a Nieto, the secretariat said in a statement.

"The objective of the state visit is to bolster the strategic partnership between the countries via expanded cooperation in priority sectors for Mexico and France," the secretariat said.

The two leaders plan to discuss bilateral and international issues, the secretariat said. Mr. Hollande and Pena Nieto will receive the first report from the Franco-Mexican Strategic Council (CEFM), a bilateral consultative body with broad knowledge of business and intellectual matters.

The CEFM report contains specific recommendations for the two governments on how they can jump-start economic relations and investment, as well as suggestions for bolstering cooperation in the education, training, cultural, research, innovation and health areas.

The two presidents plan to sign public safety, education, energy, health, sustainable development and finance agreements in an effort to boost bilateral cooperation, the secretariat said.
