Mexico has become a new platform for global production and development, according to President Enrique Peña Nieto

The Hannover Messe is the leading trade show in industrial technology, and each year it chooses a partner country to present its latest technologies, investment opportunities, growth strategies, and research projects before key members of global industries.

This year, Mexico was granted the honor of being the first Spanish-speaking partner country, which, according to the organizers, proves “Latin America is instrumental” in the “fourth Industrial Revolution.”

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the event on April 22, where the Mexican Head of State claimed Mexico has “exceeded all expectations” and that the country has become a new platform for global production and development.

As the leader of the Mexican delegation, Peña Nieto talked about Hannover Messe being a technological and industrial opportunity for Mexico to showcase a sample of its achievements and potential.

The President of the Mexican Republic exalted the virtues of investing in Mexican territory and described the country as a “broad and dynamic market” with a legal framework that provides certainty to entrepreneurs and investors.

He also talked about the modernization of the Trade Agreement with the European Union, the signature of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and the expected outcome of the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to highlight that Mexico is becoming one of the nations best integrated into international economy by partnering with different blocs.

Peña Nieto also took the opportunity to mention the ties between Mexico and Germany, recalling their trading exchanges began during the trip of Alexander Von Humboldt to Mexico during the first half of the 19th century, and the arrival of German migrants who settled in the south of the country to grow coffee beans.

The President is currently in the Netherlands, where he met with the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers to discuss investment opportunities in Mexico in the energy industry.

“During his work tour, President Enrique Peña Nieto met with the members of the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers,” reads the Tweet of the official account of the President's Office.

As part of his work tour in Europe, President Peña Nieto is also expected to visit Spain to continue strengthening the economic, political, and social dialogue with this European country.
