Mexico and Germany Strengthen TiesBy Fernanda Duque Hernández
2016: Dual Year of Mexico-Germany.
On June 9, the foreign secretaries of Germany and Mexico, Frank Walter Steinmeier and José Antonio Meade, respectively, met to agree on the creation of a binational commission that will aim towards the commitment of both nations on fundamental objectives.
During a meeting which took place at the headquarters of the German Foreign Ministry in Berlin, the officials sought to establish a framework to promote political, economic and cultural dialogue in education and environmental research.
According Steinmeier, a pact has been reached due to investment interests of German companies in Mexico, a decision supported by the talent of Mexican professionals.
This recent agreement will benefit Mexico with the commitment of Germany to promote technical training to form a more prepared workforce, and improve digital infrastructure, transport and telecommunications in the country.
Germany would also cooperate to strengthen the rule of law and the judicial system of Mexico. This means that it will work closely with Mexico’s Attorney General, Arely Gómez González.
It is worth noting that this agreement between countries takes place in the framework of the next dual year of ‘Mexico-Germany’, which will be set by 2016.
