Due to Mexico’s current economic momentum, the reforms approved and proposed, and improved international ratings, there are British companies interested on investing in Mexico, officers from the United Kingdom Embassy pointed-out.

During a visit of a committee from the Embassy to Frisa’s premises at Santa Catarina last Friday to attend the ceremony where Rolls Royce delivered and award to this company for being their best supplier, Hugo Swire, England’s Minister of State, said they want to double trade between Mexico and the United Kingdom.

“We want to double trade between Mexico and the United Kingdom by 2015 to US$7 billion per annum; we are already heading in that direction and we have much work to do”, Swire said.

“There are many (British) companies investing in Mexico, in several industries, we want more coming, but also have Mexican companies invest in the United Kingdom. Frisa is a perfect example of a great player in the United Kingdom, being Rolls Royce’s supplier”.

Swire even invited Mexican companies to go public in the London Stock Exchange.

“There are many opportunities for Mexican companies to invest in the United Kingdom, like in infrastructure, highways, airports, but we also want Mexican companies to trade their shares in the London Stock Exchange, it is a very important market for Mexican companies to have investors”, he affirmed.

“In 2014 and 2015 we are going to have Mexico’s year in the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom in Mexico, we are going to bilaterally share culture, politics and economic and investment opportunities”.
