By JOSH LEDERMANAssociated Press
In Panama, Biden will meet with President Ricardo Martinelli and tour the Panama Canal's expansion project, which is a priority for the U.S. as well.
Biden will meet in Mexico with President Enrique Pena Nieto (en-REE'-kay PAYN'-yuh nee-EH'-toh). The White House says while in Mexico, Biden will launch a high-level economic dialogue. He'll also highlight education and research.
It's Biden's second trip to the region in just a few months. In May, Biden spent six days in Latin America and the Caribbean.
On his way, Biden will visit ports in Savannah, Ga., and Charleston, S.C.
