The White House says Vice President Joe Biden is preparing to travel next month to Panama and Mexico, part of an effort by the Obama administration to strengthen economic ties with Latin and Central America.

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.
