President Enrique Peña Nieto will begin a working tour of Peru this afternoon, followed by Argentina. He will be accompanied by his wife, Angélica Rivera de Peña.

The strategic partnerships with Argentina and Peru constitute opportunities for investment, employment and educational, cultural and commercial exchange for Mexico. These strategic partnerships will mean more and better jobs for Mexicans.

The President will conduct a state visit, on Friday, July 29, in response to an invitation issued by President Mauricio Macri in January of this year in Davos, Switzerland.

The meeting between the two leaders is designed to revive and strengthen bilateral relations.

Argentina is Mexico’s fourth largest trading partner in Latin America, while Mexico is Argentina’s ninth largest trading partner.

This will be the fourth time Presidents Peña Nieto and Mauricio Macri have met. They previously met at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland within the framework of the Nuclear Security Summit, held in Washington DC in April; and recently  at the Pacific Alliance Summit in Puerto Varas, Chile.

“Since Mexico is an international player determined to promote and attract better welfare schemes for Mexicans, positioning it as a leading actor with global responsibility is a priority for President Enrique Peña Nieto”: Eduardo Sánchez Hernández.
