Prime Minister David Cameron is leading a high-level business delegation this week to Mexico, which is hosting the G20 and B20 summits in Los Cabos.
He is accompanied by Chancellor George Osborne, Trade & Investment Minister Lord Green and over 25 UK companies, institutions and universities including Diageo, Rolls Royce, Virgin Atlantic and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI). Also travelling are Business Ambassador Tamara Mellon and pottery designer Emma Bridgewater.
Lord Green said: “Almost two hundred years ago, the UK was the number one European exporter to Latin America. British expertise helped to build Mexico’s railways and canals, but UK firms currently account for less than one per cent of Mexico’s imports. We need to turn this performance around in one of the world’s most promising markets.”
