Dear web surfers,


It is with great pleasure that I extend to you a warm welcome to the official website of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Mexico.


I am delighted to have the privilege to head the European Union's Delegation in Mexico, and to be able to consolidate links which I had the opportunity to develop during previous assignments in Costa Rica and Bolivia with a continent that is a close and natural partner of the European Union, bound by shared values, history and culture.


From the signing of the Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation Agreement, most commonly known as "Global Agreement", in the year 2000, relations between the EU and Mexico have continued to strengthen, leading to the establishment of a Strategic Partnership between both countries.


Within the framework of this Strategic Partnership, Mexico and the EU have been able to widen the scope of their dialogue and to deepen their bilateral cooperation in a broad range of fields.


One of my main objectives as the Head of this Delegation is to maintain and to promote the excellent relations enjoyed by Mexico and the EU and to provide detailed information on the continuous development of this close bond. I am fully confident that this website will be a useful tool for those interested in following EU – Mexico relations. Likewise, I am certain that it will provide you with a better understanding on the functioning of the EU as a whole.


In this website, you will be able to find information on the work of the Delegation; on political, economic, and commercial topics; on cooperation projects encompassing social cohesion, justice and Human Rights, sustainable economic development, education and culture, science and technology, among others; on financing opportunities; as well as on the European Union and its Institutions.


Moreover, this website offers a "Press Corner" where you will be able to find the most recent news and events on the European Union and its relations with Mexico.


Without further ado, I wish you an enjoyable surfing our website and on behalf of the European Union Delegation to Mexico, I welcome any inquiry, comment or suggestion that you may have.


Andrew STANDLEY
Head of the European Union Delegation to Mexico.
