PERMANENT COUNCIL OF THE OEA/Ser.K/XXXIV ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN STATES GT/DOT-III/doc.12/11 1 December 2011 COMMITTEE ON HEMISPHERIC SECURITY Original: Spanish Third Meeting of the Technical Group on Transnational Organized Crime November 16, 2011 Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago SPECIFIC ACTIONS UNDERTAKEN BY THE OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE REPUBLIC PURSUANT TO THE HEMISPHERIC PLAN OF ACTION AGAINST TRANSNATIONAL ORGANIZED CRIME (PAHDOT) Period: October 2009 - November 2011 (Presented by the delegation of Mexico) I. ACTIONS 1. National strategies against transnational organized crime a. Taking a comprehensive approach to preventing and fighting transnational organized crime, with the participation of all institutions having responsibilities in this area; b. Strengthening the ability of public institutions to fight transnational organized crime effectively and promote cooperation and the exchange of experiences among states. With respect to subparagraphs (a) and (b), the 2007-2012 National Development Plan (PND) establishes the objectives, strategies, and priorities pursued by the Government under the current administration of President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa. The PND has five public policy axes: The Rule of Law and Security; a Competitive, Employment-generating Economy; Equal Opportunity; Environmental Sustainability; and Effective Democracy and Responsible Foreign Policy. One of the strategies of the first public policy axis (Rule of Law and Security), under national security, item 1.10 International Cooperation (the purpose of which is to support national security efforts and defend the sovereignty of the country), is to promote international cooperation in combating organized crime. That strategy encompasses international cooperation activities designed to promote collaboration and the exchange of information for combating drug trafficking and use with countries whose illicit activities in this respect could have repercussions on Mexican soil. There are two such activities:

1. Consolidation of a single criminal information system making it possible to coordinate the compilation, systematization, and use of the information on criminal activity and its perpetrators; and 2. The strengthening of collaboration and information sharing under a cooperation arrangement to combat drug trafficking and use with countries that have a high demand for narcotics and are involved in the chain from production to consumption. Taking that approach, the Attorney General's Office plays an active part in international forums, which it uses to promote international cooperation to address the drug trafficking phenomenon, with full respect for sovereignty and the territorial integrity of states and adhering strictly to the national legal framework and international treaties to which Mexico is party, in such a way that they can be applied effectively in fighting drug trafficking and related crimes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
