United Mexican States
I am pleased to accept the Letters of Credence accrediting you as Ambassador of the United Mexican States to the Cooperative Republic of Guyana.
I congratulate you on your appointment and welcome you to Guyana. I ask that you convey to His Excellency Andrés Manuel López Obrador, my best wishes for his personal well-being and for the continued progress and prosperity of the people of the United Mexican States.
Guyana and Mexico have enjoyed excellent relations since the establishment of diplomatic relations on 1st March 1973. These relations have been enhanced by the presence of a permanent Mexican diplomatic mission in Georgetown.
Our relations are founded on mutual respect for each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, mutual non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, cooperation for mutual benefit, respect for treaties and international law and the maintenance of regional peace and security.
Guyana-Mexico relations were reinforced, recently, at the regional level by the Fourth CARICOM-Mexico Summit held on 25th October, 2017 in Belize City where I had the opportunity to meet President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Guyana-Mexico relations have fostered active cooperation in the fields of agriculture, disaster management, education, oil and gas, and trade and to resuscitate the coconut industry.
Mexico is a valued market for Guyana’s rice. It has provided valuable technical support in disaster management; extended scholarships to build Guyana’s human resource capacity; and commenced cooperation in the oil and gas sector.
Guyana is moving towards the establishment of a ‘green state’. The ‘green state’ will place emphasis on the protection of our environment, the preservation of our biodiversity, the promotion of renewable energy and practical measures to ensure climate adaptation.
Guyana and Mexico share a common interest in working together to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change and to build greater economic and environmental resilience. Your appointment allows for the consolidation of cooperation between Guyana and Mexico.
We look forward to Mexico’s support in building a more resilient agricultural sector, increasing trade between our two states and learning from Mexico’s experience and expertise in disaster management.
We therefore look forward to improved relations between our two Republics during your tenure as Ambassador of the United Mexican States to the Cooperative Republic of Guyana.
We wish you every success in the discharge of your duties and assure you of the full support of my government.
I thank you.
