MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Tuesday that Guatemala will adopt two social programs promoted by his government, as part of efforts to create jobs and stem Central American migration to the United States.

On an official visit to Mexico, Guatemalan president Alejandro Giammattei inked agreements to adopt Mexico’s “Sembrando Vida” tree-planting scheme and “Jóvenes Construyendo el Futuro,” a jobs program for 18-to-29-year-olds.

“The meeting with President Alejandro Giammattei was beneficial. The brotherhood between our peoples has been strengthened,” Lopez Obrador said on Twitter.

Lopez Obrador’s tree planting program pays farmers to plant trees for fruit or timber on small plots of land, with the aim of creating an industry in deprived rural areas.
