CHICAGO (AP) — Rahm Emanuel has made his first international trip as Chicago mayor.

Emanuel's office said Thursday that he is in Mexico City where he will sign the Global Cities Economic Partnership with the mayor of Mexico City. Emanuel also is scheduled to meet with civic and business leaders interested in the Chicago market. He'll also stop at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Chicago and Mexico City have been sister cities since 1991. Mayor Emanuel's office says more than 1.5 million people of Mexican descent live in Chicago.

Emanuel is scheduled to return on Friday.
