For the final stop of his European tour, Foreign Minister, Luis Videgaray Caso, met yesterday with top UK officials, including Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs, Boris Johnson as part of a tour aimed at strengthening business ties with the United Kingdom, despite the UK vote to leave the European Union, which has come to be known as Brexit.

Videgaray Caso held a work meeting with Johnson and coincided in the opportunities regarding financial services, green energies, and education both countries offer after a Brexit scenario, in terms of the international strategic allegiance between Mexico and the UK.

The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office led by Johnson posted the impressions of Mexico's foreign minister on its Twitter account, following their work meeting in London:

Prior to his work meeting with Johnson on October 19, Videgaray met with the financial ambassador of the UK, Lord Mayor of London, Rt. Hon. Dr. Andrew Parmley, with a previous stop to The Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House.

Earlier this year, Lord Mayor of London, Rt. Hon. Dr. Andrew Parmley visited Mexico City to restate his country's interest in promoting UK-Mexico business relations and met top Mexican businessmen, commerce and finance officials.

At the time Dr. Parmley also expressed the opportunities in fin-tech, green bonds emission, and education his country sought to develop with Mexico, in an interview with EL UNIVERSAL in English.
