Peña Nieto seeks cooperation with Brazil

During his first official visit to Brazil, the Mexico president-elect, Enrique Peña Nieto, pointed out that both countries should work as a team, increase commerce ans cooperate, setting aside the past competition.

Peña Nieto had a meeting this Wednesday with the members of the Federation of Industries of São Paulo (FIESP) and seized the press conference to highlight his “interest in achieving further integration between Mexico and Brazil.”

The two biggest Latin American economies keep a long-lasting fight behind the scenes to take the lead in the region. The battle for a permanent seat in the UN Security Conceal has been one of those conflicts.

The president-elect highlighted though that, despite some critics “get to state that our nations are destined to a constant competition, I personally consider those statements wrong.”

Peña Nieto seeks for “complementarity chances” and a “social-aware market economy, while strengthening the democratic institution and respecting states sovereignty, fostering this way a further hemispheric cooperation.” He added as well that the first step is “a broader commerce liberalization within several sectors in both countries”, although he did not specify which sectors.

Peña Nieto announced that he would have a meeting with the Brazilian president in Brasilia. During the meeting, the presidents will study in depth their business links, which only reached 9,000 million dollars last year.

We expect our business exchanges to reach 20 or 30 billion dollars during the next few years; this is still humble,” said Paulo Skaf, FIESP president.
