Mexico rejoins G77+China multilateral forum

Mexico wants to join the group’s efforts to address challenges such as climate change and economic asymmetries.

The Group of 77 and China approved this Saturday by acclamation the full reincorporation of Mexico to this forum, a request that this country had made public the day before.

The Cuban government announced this decision of the G77+China in the last hours of the summit held by this forum in Havana since Friday, after all its members unanimously subscribed a separate declaration of the text of conclusions that closes the meeting.

The G77+China is the largest group of dialogue and consultation within the United Nations. It currently has 134 members, mainly from Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Mexico, a founding member of this forum, withdrew in 1994 after joining the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It was currently the only Latin American country not present in the G77+China.

The G77+China ministerial meeting is likely to address the technical issues of Mexico’s reincorporation, explained Rodolfo Benítez, director of Multilateral Affairs and International Law, at a press conference.

Foreign Minister Alicia Bárcena announced on Friday Mexico’s interest in rejoining “the discussions and efforts” of the Group of 77 and China when she spoke on the first day of the G77+China Summit.

The objective, she added, is to contribute to “shaping a new world”, promote South-South cooperation to face challenges such as climate change and combat current economic and social asymmetries in the world.

The Secretary of Foreign Affairs assured that mechanisms such as the G77+China have a fundamental role to play in “finding sources of development and not of war”.

Bárcena also called for greater international collaboration in scientific exchange and among universities.

The G77+China summit in Havana has brought together presidents such as Brazil’s Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Colombia’s Gustavo Petro and Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro, as well as the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres.
