President Enrique Peña Nieto led the commemoration of Mexican Navy Day.

For Mexicans, having professional, highly trained marines and soldiers is a source of pride, confidence and strength in times of adversity.

The Mexican Ministry of the Navy and National Defense are the two security institutions that inspire the greatest confidence among the population.

President Enrique Peña Nieto and the government are therefore committed to ensuring that every member of the Navy and the Army receives the best training and has the tools to perform their work effectively.

Proof of this is the delivery of the Platform for the Aeronaval Base in Veracruz, the Mexican Navy Center for Weapons Modernization and Development and the renovated facilities of the First Naval Region that were delivered during this commemoration.

Members of the Mexican Navy are staunch allies of our country, a symbol of unity, courage and loyalty in the service of the finest causes of the nation.
