"One look at our history is enough to see that Mexico and Peru share a rich, common heritage as cradles of pre-Hispanic civilizations, and an on-going cultural dialogue that is exemplified by the many Mexican readers of Mario Vargas Llosa and Peruvian readers of Octavio Paz. With these affinities as a starting point, today we look to the future, where we are increasingly united in an interest to create opportunities and prosperity for both countries”: Claudia Ruiz Massieu

Beginning today, Mexico will hold the rotating presidency of the Partnership Council for a year. The Council’s installation opens a new chapter in Mexican-Peruvian cooperation that will result in new projects, dialogues and areas of agreement that will benefit the societies of both countries.

Mexico and Peru are at an excellent point in their bilateral relationship:  over the last 12 years, for example, bilateral trade has grown by 670%. Peru is the second most important destination for Mexican investments in Latin America and ranks first among the countries of the Pacific Alliance, with an accumulated investment of over USD 14 billion. Peru is also a strategic ally in South America, where Mexico plays a key role as regional leader.

Foreign Secretary Ruiz Massieu and Foreign Minister Sánchez Vargas met privately to discuss the regional agenda and the participation of Mexico and Peru in multilateral forums such as the Pacific Alliance and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC). They also discussed trade, investment and cooperation. 

In a separate event, they inaugurated the "El Inca Garcilaso de la Vega" exhibit in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the death of this outstanding figure in Peruvian history and literature.
