Mexico expresses interest in strengthening cooperation with Russia
A meeting recently took place in Moscow between Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Mexican States to the Russian Federation Norma Pensado Moreno.
Among the topics discussed were the development of trade and economic ties, collaboration between Russia and Mexico on holding multilateral events, and partnership encompassing regional associations and business organizations.
“Through fostering trade and economic ties, Russia and Mexico will be able to strengthen bilateral dialogue and work more effectively on implementing agreements that are currently in place. What’s more, it will help spur mutually beneficial cooperation with new partners. We have a keen interest in expanding our partnership in order to implement our plans in the cultural, humanitarian, and economic spheres,” said Kobyakov.
“This year marks the 130-year anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between our nations. We plan to commemorate this date with an event in Russia,” said Ambassador Pensado.
Discussions also focused on increasing collaboration between the Roscongress Foundation and business associations in Mexico. The Mexican Business Council for Foreign Trade, Investment and Technology (COMCE) became a partner of the Roscongress Foundation in 2018. Since that time, it has consistently helped to promote the Foundation’s events in the Mexican business community. In addition, the two individuals looked into the possibility of establishing a partnership between the Roscongress Foundation and Impulso Económico Global. The latter organization, which forms part of Mexico’s Secretariat of Foreign Affairs, was founded at the beginning of 2020 as the main office responsible for boosting Mexican economic growth on the global market. As new business organizations from Mexico join the Roscongress Foundation’s international partner network, so additional opportunities will be created for the Foundation to hold events across Latin America. This will build upon the Russia–Latin America forums which took place in Uruguay in 2016, and Cuba in 2018.
