President Enrique Peña Nieto welcomed the head of state of Singapore, Tony Tan Keng Yam, who is on a state visit to Mexico.

In the central patio of the National Palace, the two heads of state, accompanied by their wives, Angélica Rivera Hurtado and Mary Tan, listened to both countries’ national anthems.

Tony Tan Keng received an explanation of a mural by Diego Rivera in the central stairwell of the National Palace.

Mexico and Singapore will sign trade agreements, triangular cooperation agreements, and agricultural and educational agreements. This is the first visit by a Singapore head of state to a country in Latin America.

The two heads of state met in private, with members of Peña Nieto’s cabinet and Tan Keng’s delegation. After their meeting, they will release a statement.

Later, Peña Nieto will offer a meal in honor of his counterpart in Singapore in the Salón Tesorería of the National Palace.

Bilateral relations between Singapore and Mexico began 40 years ago. Both countries are part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
