Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto expressed to his Vietnamese counterpart, Trần Đại Quang, the determination of his government to strengthen the friendship bonds among both countries while enriching the bilateral agenda.

Prior to his participation on the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders' Meeting, Enrique Peña Nieto spoke with Trần Đại Quang to extend his condolences for the lives lost and damage caused by the Typhoon Damrey that struck Vietnam on Saturday.

During the private meeting, Peña Nieto highlighted the successful completion of the first meeting of the Vietnam-Mexico Joint Committee on Economic, Trade and Investment Cooperation, held in Hanoi, on November 7.

Peña Nieto congratulated Trần Đại Quang "for the work developed throughout this year in presiding over the work of APEC”.

APEC Vietnam 2017 will focus on improving adaptation to change in a globalized world emphasizing four key priorities: promotion of sustainable, innovative and inclusive growth; fostering regional integration and connectivity; supporting micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the digital era; and enhancing food security and sustainable agriculture and adapting to climate change.

APEC is the most important political-economic coordination mechanism in the region and it comprises 21 economies that together represent 39% of the world population, 60% of the global gross domestic product (GDP), and half of world trade.
