Mexico has a wide array of consuls in Europe, America, and Africa, and also in many other countries. Many of you are young, others have more than 20 years experience in this post. Just as we did years ago, today we seek support from the honorary consuls. In recent years, Mexico has been in trouble and you have supported us. Therefore, today is a special day for Mexico, which is headed by President Pena Nieto, and today, in this meeting, he expresses his recognition for your goodwill and your help. .

This meeting is the moment to strengthen the friendship between Mexico and your countries of origin. We pray for the strengthening of our economic relations, trade and cultural exchanges. I believe that today I express our common desire to advance the relations between our countries in every aspect. I share with pleasure the fact that Mexico is moving toward being an economic center, so we are asking you to pave this route through promotion. Thank you for the work done so far.

For the first time, in the meeting of the Honorary Consuls of the United States of Mexico, there was a representative from Albania, the honorary consul of Mexico to Albania, Ylli Ndroqi, for whom the Foreign Minister Jose Antonio Meade Kuribrena reserved a special meeting.

Meanwhile, at the meeting of the honorary consuls, the Mexican ministers presented other important sectors of The United States of Mexico.
Economy is the backbone of a country, and the Minister of Economy, Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal, familiarized the consuls with the economic situation in Mexico.

“You have witnessed the difficult periods in the Mexican Economy. But thankfully, we learned from our mistakes quickly, and in the early 90’s, we laid the foundations for a strong economy. Having been elected for two terms in a row, I’ve been a witness to the fact, that there could be no other way, other than taking the tough measures that would lead us to economic growth. Even today, I think this was the best decision. 20 years ago we exported 66% of domestic production, today this figure has been increased to 93%. The liberalization of the market has transformed our manufacturing sector. The transformation of our economy began in 1994, and today, we have a significant increase in foreign trade. Today Mexico is combining talent with the resources that nature has provided. However it was not easy to get here, it took two decades to reach consensus, to carry out the difficult reforms. What we have achieved is also thanks to President Enrique Pena Nieto, who used his power to restore the economy, ” said Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal.

During the conference, the consuls were able to give their input, about how the relations between Mexico and the countries they represent might be promoted and strengthened in the fields of economy, trade, and tourism, especially to increase investment, and strengthen mutual trade exchanges.
Referring to the statement of the Minister of Economy, Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal, that Mexico has one of the world’s most developed economies, the Honorary Consul of Mexico to Albania, Ylli Ndroqi , asked him:
What are your plans and strategies for strengthening economic relations with the Balkan countries?
“Although our economy has been more open toward North America in these years, the ties and exchanges with Europe have always been very important to us. We have signed an agreement in 2000, which in fact, should be further developed, and our ministry, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is drawing up a new strategy for economic relations with Europe, part of which will be the strengthening of exchanges and economic relations with Albania, and the Balkan countries. One example of success is the strategy we have undertaken to enter the Middle East, which has proven to be extremely successful. We have also entered Asia through a cooperation strategy in the same way, and can create bridges of cooperation with Albania and the Balkan countries, ” said Villarreal.

But the Mexican economy and the daily life of its citizens gets ts life from a key sector, tourism.

Each year, the United States of Mexico is a tourist destination for millions of people from around the world, who are welcomed through 52 international airports lying across the territory.
Tourism is an asset that is appreciated by the Mexican citizens, and the government of the country. Cultural tourism, coastal, adventure, and recently health and well-being, turn Mexico into a unique country.
102 Honorary Consuls of the United States of Mexico, were familiarized by the Minister of Recreation and Tourism Industry, Claudia Ruis Masseiu, with the unlimited possibilities offered by this country in this sector.
“Mexico is a different country, with many tourist destinations. The beaches are populated, and create the impression that the coast is the most preferred touristic location in Mexico. But you are wrong, cultural tourism holds the first place. But the adventure tourism, sports, and luxury , accompanied by good food, attract people’s attention from around the world. Today Cancun, established 40 years ago, and Acapulco, are international brands. In their visit to Mexico, tourists also enjoy their days even more because of the good food. Our cuisine is very unique, thanks to the unique compounds in the food that we prepare. We preserve the traditional cuisine. Two of the 20 best restaurants in the world, are in Mexico.
All these elements make our work in attracting tourists easier, and hopefully yours, honorable consuls, in promoting our country. I invite you today to be partners and allies for the good of Mexico, ” said the Minister of Recreation and Tourism Industry, Claudia Ruis Masseiu.
Mexico, although a destination that is geographically distant from Albania, is turning into one of the favorites for the Albanians. However, there is still much work to be done. Convinced of this, the Honorary Consul of the United States of Mexico to Albania, Ylli Ndroqi, asked: “In Albania there are many Albanians who are interested to visit and to recognize Mexico. What could be the opportunity you have to undertake together to enhance cooperation in this very important sector for both our countries”?

“We have a regional center in Europe for the promotion of tourism, so you can create contacts for different areas, so that we can cooperate not only with Albania, but with the entire Balkan region. This agency promotes Mexican tourism, and broaches special agreements with various tourist agencies, and we may work on a strategic plan to promote tourism in Mexico, and in Albania. The third step…if there are annual tourism fairs taking place in Albania, with pleasure we can bring our representatives, who will promote Mexican tourism, “said the Minister Claudia Ruis Masseiu.
After this speech, given at the meeting of the Honorary Consuls, the Minister of Tourism Claudia Ruis Masseiu, had a brief conversation with the Honorary Consul of the United States of Mexico to Albania, Ylli Ndroqi.

Mr. Ndroqi familiarized the minister with his efforts to promote the tourism of Mexico as one of the world’s best attractions. He invited the Minister to visit Albania, an invitation which the Minister accepted with pleasure.
Mexico has begun the transformation path, which is reflected in the growth of the country’s finances. The Minister of Finance and Public Credit in the United States of Mexico, Luis Videgaray Caso, spoke to the Honorary consuls, about what he called the country’s era of change.
“Let me first thank you for your outstanding work, through which you connect Mexico with the country from where you come, and give a valuable contribution to each of us. Today the world is speaking about all the reforms that Mexico is undertaking, under President Nieto. The reforms made Mexico to start its engines and move forward with big steps. In 1980, Mexico was a closed market, but today, it is one of the best countries for trade in the world. Today we have economic agreements with 45 countries. Now the economic agreements include not only exports, but also foreign investment in Mexico, and Mexican investments abroad. Today Mexico has become a country with strong economic stability, which gives security to each investment, “said Luis Videgaray Caso.

Francisco Gonzales, the General Director of ProMéxico, spoke about the diversity of possibilities that Mexico offers.
“Mexico is a free economy. It is expected to become the world’s fifth largest economy, turning into one of the most important countries for doing business in the world. Human capital is the key in this economy. Today we have significantly grown our exports, and more importantly, our exports are highly technological. We are ranked in the 8th place in the world for the export of items that are used for advanced technology, and we hold the 6th place for the export of materials that are used in aircraft manufacturing. We are promoting this growing economy, and the free economy that Mexico has. Your recommendations, dear honorable consuls, will help us to strengthen trade exchanges. You are the ones who can steer us in the right direction. You can tell us the best that each country offers, “said Gonzales.
