Mexico hopes to expand business ties, guest-worker program with Canada
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican officials expressed hopes Wednesday that their country could expand business ties and the current guest-worker program with Canada as President Vicente Fox headed to Alberta and British Columbia.

Fox will be accompanied on the two-day visit by a delegation of about 30 Mexican businessmen and will focus on meetings with Canadian leaders in the mining, transport and energy sectors, many of whom have investments in Mexico.

"The program has been growing systematically," Gutierrez said, noting that it now involves about 12,000 workers a year, "and there are now workers in other sectors" beside agriculture.

"There could be an exchange of professional employees as well," Gutierrez noted.
