Gov. Gray Davis embarks this week on a self-described healing mission to Mexico, a powerful symbol of the new Democratic control in California. The three-day trip reflects a campaign promise Davis made to aggressively address California's strained relations with Mexico--as well as with the state's politically emerging Latino community--which were damaged during Republican-backed debates over illegal immigration, bilingual education and affirmative action.

If a free-trade agreement between the United States and Mexico is ratified, it will bring a wealth of economic benefits to California and Mexico, including a tripling of trade between the two in the 1990s, according to a study released Monday by Bank of America. California will "gain considerably" from such an agreement primarily because Mexico will become more prosperous, the study predicted. "We are quite optimistic about the effects of a free-trade agreement," said Frederick L.

Imagine the challenge for El Cajon-based Solid Gold Holistic, an "animal nutrition center" trying to market America's only 100% natural dog food in a nation where a crippling economic crisis has left many people barely able to feed themselves. "I'm a positive person--I'm not giving up," Manny Rosillo, the company's national sales manager, said this week as, for the second year in a row, he manned a booth at the U.S. Trade Center. "But this is my last card.

Reflecting Asia's astonishing comeback, California exports to the region in the second quarter showed the first clear signs of a broad recovery. And for the first time, Mexico overtook Japan to become California's top export destination. On the whole, the value of California's exports still declined in the second quarter from the same period a year ago, according to data released Tuesday by the Massachusetts Institute for Social and Economic Research.

California's exports to Asia showed modest signs of recovery early this year, but shipments to the region still fell short of year-ago levels. And this time, Europe and Mexico failed to provide a buffer. The value of California's total exports in the first quarter fell 7% from the same period a year ago, to $24.8 billion, according to data released Friday by the Massachusetts Institute for Social and Economic Research.

I know, I know, it's easy for me to talk. There's not much chance that my employer will move to Mexico, where poorly paid pundits working in unsafe newsrooms will crank out cut-rate columns for export to the United States. So of course I'm in favor of the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement. But you should be too, even if you grow tomatoes. Even, in fact, if you pick tomatoes. There are two reasons: First, North American free trade will be good for California.

In an effort to counter opposition from labor, Democrats and environmentalists, Gov. Pete Wilson Thursday issued a strong defense of the embattled U.S. free trade agreement with Mexico, saying it will bring jobs and prosperity to California. Wilson, speaking to about 400 members of the Los Angeles World Affairs Council, blamed "xenophobic zingers" and a "new and ugly streak" of protectionist rhetoric for undermining attempts to promote free trade in this hemisphere.

What has changed between California and Mexico--indeed, between the U.S. and Mexico--to cause the celebration surrounding the visit of President Ernesto Zedillo this week? Mexico is now "showing the money." The possibilities for business with Mexico are greater than ever. Mexico and the United States now exchange more than $170 billion in goods annually. Mexico bought more than $22 billion worth of services, such as telecommunications, education and data processing, from the U.S. last year.

Gov. Gray Davis arrived here Monday evening to announce as loudly as he can that there is a new governor in California, one who wants to make the state's relationship with Mexico a top priority. "For too long, California and Mexico have pointed fingers at one another, held one another accountable and assessed blame," Davis said in a news conference shortly after his arrival. "I think it is time for a new compact between my great state and the great people of the Republic of Mexico.
