Canada to welcome Mexican secretaries-designate
October 19, 2018 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada
Canada and Mexico’s enduring partnership is based on a shared commitment to a secure, prosperous, inclusive and democratic world.
The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today announced that she will welcome Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico’s foreign secretary-designate, to Ottawa on Monday, October 22, 2018. Mr. Ebrard will be joined by a delegation of six fellow secretaries-designate who will be responsible, among other portfolios, for Mexico’s interior affairs, environment, energy, economy, finance and agriculture.
This visit is a key opportunity to further enhance the Canada-Mexico partnership in advance of president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador and his administration assuming office on December 1, 2018.
After meetings with Canadian ministers in Ottawa, the seven secretaries-designate will split up to visit Montréal, Quebec, and Toronto and Guelph, Ontario, for meetings with provincial governments and various private sector representatives.
“In July I had the privilege to visit Mexico City to meet with president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador. I am delighted that we will have this unique opportunity to welcome the president-elect’s team to Canada. I look forward to meeting again with the secretaries-designate who, among others, will form Mexico’s next government and beginning discussions on how we can work together to further strengthen this essential relationship.”
