Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, G. Katrougalos, on tour of Latin American countries (25-31 October 2017)

Friday, 27 October 2017

Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, Giorgos Katrougalos, is carrying out a tour of Latin America, with the aim of imparting momentum to relations with traditionally friendly countries in the region that, despite being emerging economic powers, do not have a significant volume of trade with Greece.

Greece has observer status in the Pacific Alliance, one of the most effective efforts towards economic integration in Central and South America.

The Alternate Foreign Minister’s first stop was Mexico, where, on 25 and 26 October, he held productive meetings with the Deputy Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Carlos Alberto de Icaza Conzalez, Energy, L. Berltran Rodriguez, Trade, Juan Carlos Baker, and Tourism, Maria Teresa Solis.

Mr. Katrougalos also met with the Greek community of Mexico and, at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), delivered a lecture on the future of Europe and Greece’s relevant proposals. The Alternate Minister gave a similar lecture at Columbia University, in New York City, during his stay there on the way Mexico City.

Today, 27 October, Mr. Katrougalos will visit Colombia, from where he will travel on to Cuba, the last stop on his tour.
