In April this year, President Enrique Peña Nieto inaugurated the Year of Mexico in Germany, which was the beginning of an ambitious program to showcase our country from different angles. This will give out a more complete and contemporary image of Mexico to the world, as it will generate innovative initiatives for the future as well.
The celebration for the Dual Year Mexico – Germany 2016-2017 will basically strengthen the existing alliance between these two countries.
A platform has been established to broaden the mutual understanding between nations and to deepen the exchange and collaboration between two different but equally traditionalist societies, but most of all, to intensify the political dialogue.
This alliance is planned to build a future in common, to face the challenges of the 21st Century together in a sustainable and responsible way . This will be possible through cultural, economic, scientific and academic activities that are taking place in both countries.
Germany is the first main commercial partner in the European Union for Mexico, and in return, Mexico has placed itself as Germany’s closest Hispanic economic partner. Our country is the only one in Latin America that has free trade agreements with Germany, for investment protection and to avoid double taxation.
A broad agenda has been set up, given the diversity of the bond between the two countries, this agenda has three main categories:
- 1) Commerce, investigation and tourism
- 2) Education, science and innovation
- 3) Art and creative industries
Our bilateral cooperation relationship is to be looked up to, we’ve successfully dabbled in triangular cooperation projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. With all of this in mind and based in a joint agenda founded on the principles of creativity, productivity, sustainable development and the promotion of democracy and human rights is how the Dual Year was established.
