President Enrique Peña Nieto participated in the Handover Ceremony of the Peruvian Presidency, in which Pedro Pablo Kuczynski assumed the presidency of the country.
President Peña Nieto’s participation in the ceremony reflects Mexico’s will to further diversify and deepen bilateral relations.
Mexico and Peru maintain a high-level political dialogue, together with robust bilateral cooperation. They are members of the Pacific Alliance, a mechanism that promotes economic integration, and for a year, their relationship has been governed by the Strategic Partnership Agreement (EPA).
In 2015, Peru was Mexico’s fifth largest trading partner in Latin America and the Caribbean after Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Argentina, with bilateral trade exceeding $2.3 billion USD. It is also one of the main destinations of Mexican investments in the region, with an accumulated total of over $14.5 million USD (1999-2015).
