We have a close working relationship with the Mexican Government and are working to increase bilateral trade. During the State Visit to the UK by President Enrique Peña Nieto in March 2015 we held the first meeting of the UK/Mexico Senior Business Leaders Group. In the last year we have made use of ministerial visits to Mexico to promote trade interests including visits by my noble Friend the Minister of State for International Trade Lord Price and ministers from across Government . The DIT team in Mexico are working on 10 High Value Campaigns for exports, and attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into the UK and ensure that British companies benefit from commercial opportunities.
