Mexico is trying to reconcile its education system and the labor market with a model based in the German experience, and it aims to apply it in all the nation, expressed Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

Peña Nieto and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with 60 Mexican and Canadian students, to whom the visiting leader spoke about the plans to increase the entry of young people into the labor market.

During their meeting with the students at the Canadian Natural Museum, Peña Nieto also spoke about the security problems of Mexico and the image they give to the country.

“No country is without security problems, on a different scale and context, but in the end we have to respond to the call as governments to face organized crime," expressed Peña Nieto.

Peña Nieto and Trudeau started their day with a jog over the bridge from Ontario into Quebec and ended with an elegant state dinner at Rideau Hall, which just so happened to coincide with Governor-General David Johnston's 75th birthday.

At a joint news conference on Tuesday, the two leaders stood side by side as Trudeau called Peña Nieto a "friend of Canada".
