The CCA, in collaboration with ProMéxico, will host the Director General of the Mexican National Bank for Foreign Trade (Bancomext), Enrique de la Madrid, for a discussion on August 28, 2014.
This event comes on the heels of a memorandum signed earlier this year between Export Development Canada and Bancomext. The initiative builds on existing efforts to develop new bilateral projects, increase the exchange of best practices, and identify opportunities for finance, trade and investment between Canada and Mexico.
