Along with representatives of 23 Dutch companies, the Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Lilianne Ploumen, is in Mexico on an official visit that will end on September 4th. The visit is part of an economic mission to strengthen ties between the two nations.
Ploumen will visit the state of Campeche, one of the country’s greatest oil producers. The program will focus on energetic and maritime sectors (ports, dredging, shipbuilding) as a result of the reforms to the Mexican energy market.
In addition to promoting commercial relations, Ploumen will visit Mexico on the occasion of the “Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation” Meeting (GPEDC), where she is co-chairman.
After the United States, the Netherlands is the largest foreign investor in Mexico with 10 billion euros, due to the opportunities offered by the country in providing offshore services.
Mexico looks towards the Netherlands as a role model to successful implementation of the energetic reform.
Ploumen will visit Campeche, where more than half of all Mexican Oil is extracted, and the port of Ciudad del Carmen, where the Minister will visit the Headquarters of a Dutch Company specialized in soil investigation and integral offshore shipping.
The Dutch minister is scheduled to meet with the CEO of Pemex Emilio Lozoya and the Energy Secretary Pedro Joaquin Coldwell.
Meanwhile, several business agreements will be signed between Mexican and Dutch companies. And an energy cooperation treaty between the Netherlands and Mexico will be defined.
