UK-Mexico alliance to tackle corruption and impunity

The UK embassy in Mexico launched the Anti-Corruption and Rule of Law Prosperity Fund to reduce poverty and increase prosperity and security in our country

Amidst heavy rain, a good omen for the British, the United Kingdom’s embassy in Mexico launched the UK Prosperity Fund Mexico Program focused on the support of inclusive economic development to reduce poverty and increase prosperity and security in our country, as well as in the UK.

Baroness Susan Williams, UK’s Minister of State and Minister of Equalities, introduced the Anti-Corruption and Rule of Law UK and Mexico Prosperity Fund and said it was designed as a “powerful mechanism to maximize our shared prosperity and support social inclusion,” which will focus on the detection and investigation of priority crimes in the areas of rule of law, anti-corruption, and cybercrime, working jointly with justice institutions to ensure equal access to justice.

The program will work jointly with the current Mexican government, which has recognized impunity as the principal barrier to fight insecurity and corruption in the National Plan for Development 2019-2024. Mexico is at an ideal time for strategic interventions that allow it to reduce poverty and advance in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
