The official Belgian economic mission led by Princess Astrid on behalf of King Philippe was held in Mexico from February 15-22. The mission comprised of more than 200 business executives and academic representatives. They took part in sectorial forums and business meetings in Mexico City and Monterrey. The delegation was welcomed by Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard.
The first official activity of the Princess and the ministerial delegation was a meeting with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. The negotiations focused on the possibility to strengthen the Mexican- Belgian dialogue in terms of trade, investment and other areas both countries can cooperate in. The main sectors of interest are mostly healthcare technologies, port and infrastructure development and sustainable solutions for the cities.
Belgium and Mexico are partners under the new Mexico– European Union Global Agreement whose terms are being finalized at the moment. Both meeting and Agreement will broaden the mutual understanding, and cross- national cooperation.
