The relationship between Mexico and Peru is unique in the region: they claim the oldest and most diverse civilizations of our continent and share a wide variety of historical, cultural, natural and religious similarities. These shared attributes help promote and stimulate a reciprocal understanding and bilateral dialogue based on mutual respect.
At the political level, the bilateral relationship is experiencing one of its best moments, due to their shared membership in the Pacific Alliance and implementation of the Bilateral Strategic Partnership Agreement, which was signed in July 2014 and entered into force in 2015.
In the economic and commercial spheres, Mexico is one of Peru’s main partners. Mexican investment in Peru totals more than 14 billion dollars, making Peru Mexico’s second most important destination for investments in Latin America, after Brazil.
President Peña Nieto’s visit to Peru is a clear demonstration of the Mexican government’s desire to continue strengthening the relationship.
