The visit to Mexico of the Deputy Minister Marina Sereni, who had numerous institutional meetings with President Alfonso Romo Garza's Head of Office, Maximiliano Reyes Zuñiga and Julian Ventura, with the Executive Director of the Mexican Development Cooperation Agency, Laura Carrillo Cubillas, continues.
A wide range of topics was discussed with the interlocutors, starting with the many areas of bilateral cooperation, in the economic and commercial, cultural, scientific and technological fields.
Regional themes were then reviewed, such as the situation in Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua. The cooperation between the two countries in the multilateral field was then examined. Attention was mainly focused on the state of implementation of Agenda 2030, the climate change, also concerning the Italian co-presidency of COP 26, and G20 agenda priorities because of the Italian presidency in 2021.
Finally, Marina Sereni met representatives of non-governmental organisations and civil society, with whom she exchanged views on human rights, justice, security, the right to children, education and social cohesion.
"All these meetings - commented the Deputy Minister - confirmed the excellent relations between Italy and Mexico and highlighted the enormous potential for further collaboration on the economic, cultural, social and political levels. We are working to prepare a System Mission with companies interested in investing in Mexico and updating the political agreements on the main common challenges: fight against inequalities, promotion of sustainable development and implementation of Agenda 2030, strong commitment against organised crime and corruption".
The Deputy Minister also visited the Museum of Culture in Mexico City where the exhibition of former votive offerings recovered by the Carabinieri for Cultural Heritage and returned to Mexico in recent months is on display.
