At the first university congress for internationalists of Mexico organized by the Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico (ITAM), the Foreign Secretary gave the keynote address outlining the principles and objectives of Mexico’s foreign policy.

In her remarks, she highlighted Mexico’s global economic importance; our focus on exports that has led us to sign 12 trade agreements with 46 countries; our geographic position and our four borders; and Mexico’s so-called "soft power," that is, our ability to wield influence at the international level through our culture, values ​​and prestige.

She also said that Mexico practices an ongoing multilateral activism and is part of the major global agreements.

Speaking about the relationship between Mexico and the United States, the Foreign Secretary said that the Foreign Ministry’s strategy is not intended solely to respond to an electoral situation, but also to empower our community and to protect and promote the long-term interests of Mexico.
