MEXICO CITY, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Mexico's Comprehensive Development Plan, which seeks to curb immigration from Central America, is rapidly generating jobs in the region, Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Marcelo Ebrard said on Wednesday.

"Our commitment to generating jobs in Central American countries is progressing quickly and we will be able to fulfill that commitment in a timely manner," Ebrard said during a presentation on immigration issues at a press conference that also featured Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

The Comprehensive Development Plan is composed of three programs that will attempt to create a zone of regional prosperity that includes the Mexican southeast and the three northern Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

The minister explained that the idea behind one of the programs, "Sowing Life", was the creation of productive agroforestry systems, as well as the cultivation of traditional fruit and timber trees.
