SINGAPORE: Singapore and Mexico have entered into several agreements which will promote bilateral tourism flows, greater exchanges in the arts and culture fields and facilitate training programmes between the diplomatic academies of the Singapore and Mexico foreign ministries.

This comes as Mexico's Secretary of Foreign Affairs Jose Antonio Meade Kuribrena arrives in Singapore on Friday for a two-day visit.

Mr Meade is accompanied by Secretary of Tourism Claudia Ruiz-Massieu Salinas and senior government officials.

Mr Meade was hosted to lunch by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

Mr Meade also met Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law K Shanmugam.

Both countries welcomed the deepening and broadening of bilateral relations in the economic, cultural and political spheres, and exchanged views on regional and international developments.

Mr Shanmugam and Mr Meade also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Cultural and Artistic Cooperation between the National Council for Culture and the Arts of Mexico (CONACULTA) and the National Arts Council of Singapore (NAC), and an MOU between the Singapore Diplomatic Academy and the Institute Matias Romero of Mexico.

At the same signing ceremony, an MOU on Tourism Cooperation between the Secretariat of Tourism of Mexico and the Singapore Tourism Board was signed by Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry Lee Yi Shyan and Secretary of Tourism Ruiz-Massieu.
