The Delegation of the European Union in Mexico welcomes you to our website

Here you can find detailed information on a wide range of activities and events that highlight the dynamism of the bilateral relationship and has been growing since the signing of the Agreement on Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation, better known as "Global Agreement" in the year 2000, until we became Strategic Partners in 2008.

An example of this close link is the many High Level Dialogues in various areas that we carry out year after year. We are also in the process of modernizing the Global Compact and promoting a stronger Strategic Partnership by strengthening cooperation on global and regional issues of common interest, such as climate change, the sustainable development agenda, drug trafficking and the fight against organized international crime, as well as migration.

In addition, you will find information on education and culture, including scholarships for masters under the Erasmus + program, on science and technology, on funding opportunities and on the European Union and its institutions.

On the other hand, you can contact us directly through our social networks on Facebook (Unión Europea en México) and Twitter (@UEenMexico), or through the email:
