As the last event of the State Visit to Denmark, President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto and his wife, Angélica Rivera de Peña, hosted a dinner in honor of Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and His Royal Highness Prince Consort Henrik.

The President of Mexico noted that in each of the activities undertaken during his state visit, “We witnessed the friendship and links between Danes and Mexicans.”

He declared that the signing of various bilateral instruments during this state visit confirms the will for dialogue and cooperation of both governments.

President Peña Nieto thanked Queen Margrethe II for the hospitality towards him, his wife and members of his delegation during their stay in Denmark.

 “We will take your affection and warmth, creativity and vision of life away with us from this visit,” he said.

The Mexican president told Queen Margrethe II that, “Danes value your intelligence and leadership, sensitivity and humanism. He also hailed her work on behalf of the arts and culture in Denmark, especially through the study of the remarkable Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen, whose work is world heritage.”

Earlier, President Peña Nieto and his wife, Angélica Rivera de Peña, attended an event organized by the LEGO Foundation, during which they observed several teaching and learning techniques such as using the educational tool Six Bricks and solving math problems with robots.

The event was also attended by Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary; Hans Toft, Mayor of Gentofte; Jakob Lykke, Director of Tjørnegårds Primary School; Kjeld Kirk Kristensen, President of the LEGO Foundation; and Jorgen Kvid Knudstrup, Director General of the LEGO Group.

The LEGO Foundation collaborates with the Integral System for Integral Family Development (DIF), through donations of edutainment materials to hundreds of childcare facilities located in Mexico City and the state of Nuevo León. The LEGO Foundation, established in 1986, seeks to inspire children to develop their skills so they can build a better future.

Also today, the President paid a courtesy visit to Speaker of the Danish Parliament Pia Kjaersgaard at Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the three branches of the Danish government. The gathering was attended by leading members of the Danish legislative power.

There, the President spoke about the political and electoral reform passed by the Mexican Congress in 2014, which introduced legislative re-election and more equitable gender representation in both chambers.

After dinner, President Peña Nieto, his wife Angélica Rivera de Peña and his delegation were driven to Copenhagen Airport to return to Mexico City, where they are expected to arrive in the early hours of Friday.
