The Mexican Ambassador to Kuwait H.E. Miguel Angel Isidro marked the 207th Anniversary of his country’s Independence Day with a reception on 18 September at the Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa.

The Assistant Foreign Minister for Economic Affairs Amal Al-Hamad was the chief guest of the function attended by members of the diplomatic corps, Kuwaiti officials and media personnel.

In his address to the gathering, Ambassador Isidro expressed his condolences towards his countrymen, who were affected by the 7 September earthquake that struck Mexico, and requested a moment of silence.

Ambassador Isidro moved on to laud the prolonged 42-year relationship between Kuwait and Mexico that saw bilateral dialogue become more dynamic. He added that he hoped both countries would proceed to work together with the aim of reaching mutually beneficial opportunities of economic cooperation. On the sidelines of the function, Minister Al-Hamad announced the first meeting of the joint Kuwaiti-Mexican committee in early January.

She pointed out that the committee's main objectives are beefing up economic cooperation and creating investment opportunities between the two friendly countries.

She explained that the committee would tackle a wide array of economic, trade and investment issues. Al-Hamad also stressed that Kuwait signed a memorandum of understanding with the Mexican direct investment authority to promote joint investments. She concluded by highlighting Kuwait's keenness to strengthen economic, cultural and political relations between the two countries.

The function had a traditional touch due to the presence of authentic Mexican cuisine prepared by Mexican Chef Sofia and a booth filled with beautiful Mexican trinkets.
