Welcome message from the Chair

In my capacity as elected Chair of the European Parliament's Delegation to the EU-Mexico Joint Parliamentary Committee (D-MX), I have the honour of chairing its meetings held in Brussels or Strasbourg. Alongside the Chair of the Mexican Congress Delegation, Freyda Marybel Villegas Canché, I also co-chair the biannual meetings of the EU-Mexico Joint Parliamentary Committee (EU-Mexico JPC) held alternately in Europe and Mexico.

Mexico is a member of the G-20, it is the second largest economy in Latin America and it is a very important strategic partner for the European Union, sharing the same cultural and ethical values and upholding similar positions to those of the EU in the major multilateral fora. Protecting human rights is a priority issue in the delegation's work.

The core activity of D-MX during the current EP term will be inspired by the objective of strengthening the political cooperation between the Mexican and the European people, not only by virtue of our strong cultural ties, but also in view of the common challenges that await our countries.

Along with the necessary commitment to update the Global Agreement, our efforts will have to focus on consolidating the rule of law, democracy, and cultural and social cooperation, without neglecting the battle for a more equitable and inclusive society.
