Mexico and Caricom relations
Seeking to foster institutional development, social and cultural needs, the government of Mexico has now strengthened its relations with the Caribbean Community.
Caricom Secretary General, Dr. Edwin Carrington, in his remarks at the presentation of credentials by Mexican Ambassador to Guyana, noted that Mexico and Caricom’s relations date back to 1974 with the signing of an Agreement establishing the CARICOM-Mexico Joint Commission and further stated that Caricom has benefited significantly from Mexico’s co-operation.
The Mexican Ambassador Fernando Sandoval however believes that Caricom has one of the most advanced regional integration schemes in the world.
The Ambassador further pointed to some of the areas that Mexico will be looking to address.
The Caribbean Community is also looking forward with great expectation to the enhancement of cooperation that will result from the establishment of a Mexican embassy in Guyana.
