The Consulate General of the United States in Mérida celebrated its national holiday to commemorate the 248th anniversary of American Independence presided over by Consul General Dorothy Ngutter.

Dorothy Ngutter took the opportunity to say goodbye as she prepared to conclude her period as Consul General in charge of bilateral relations with the Yucatan Peninsula.

The event included the presence of friends, partners, and collaborators from the three states of the Yucatan Peninsula with whom the Consulate has worked in recent years.

Authorities, civil organizations, the private sector, and academic institutions from Campeche, Quintana Roo, and Yucatán were also present.

In his speech she highlighted the broad and deep collaboration always hand in hand with governments and other entities in the region, to join in supporting the development of the south-southeast of Mexico.

“We have important economic and commercial advances (with new American companies), public-private projects promoting entrepreneurship, cooperation in the environment, and cultural collaboration, for the benefit of the communities of the Yucatan Peninsula.”

The Consul highlighted the 200 years of bilateral relations between Mexico and the United States, and the 180 years of the Consulate’s presence on the Peninsula in a long-lasting relationship that covers a wide range of issues and projects.

In the face of new global challenges, it is important to continue laying the foundations with partners and friends, like Mexico, for a better future in both nations and both peoples, she stressed.

At the end of her speech, the Consul expressed: “I am the dream of my ancestors.  Today I also honor those who came before me and paved the way. It has been a privilege for me to represent my country here in the Yucatan Peninsula. To all the friends, partners, and strategic allies of Campeche, Quintana Roo, and Yucatán, a sincere thank you from me — I carry you in my heart.”
