Dear members and friends of the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico,

I am delighted to share an exciting update on our work during the second quarter (April-June) of 2023.

Just a few days ago, on June 21st, we celebrated with great joy the remarkable 102 years of the British Chamber’s dedication to promoting trade and investment between the United Kingdom and Mexico. We remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering strong and enduring business relationships.

I am also proud to announce that Angélica Ruiz, Senior Vice President Latam at bp and the first female President of the BritChaM Council, was recently recognized by Forbes as one of Mexico’s 100 Most Powerful Women. Her outstanding leadership at the helm of our organization is truly commendable.

During the past few months, we have collaborated with the Chamber’s Pride Alliance Group to champion inclusion and diversity in business. We have also established valuable connections with prestigious Mexican universities such as Tecnológico de Monterrey, Universidad Panamericana, Anáhuac, IBERO, and Ula, fostering collaboration in both the academic and business spheres.

Furthermore, we had the pleasure of organizing an insightful event on the topic of artificial intelligence, exploring the exciting opportunities and challenges it presents. Additionally, we proudly introduced the Renewable e Index MX, a project aimed at driving the development of renewable energies in Mexico.

However, our work does not stop here. It is crucial that we continue to seek new opportunities, forge synergies, and strengthen trade ties between the United Kingdom and Mexico. Each and every one of us plays a pivotal role in this endeavour.

I invite you to actively collaborate by participating in our upcoming events, sharing your valuable ideas and perspectives, and maximizing the resources and networks offered by our Chamber. Together, let us strive for continued success!

Warm regards,

Gilles Vignal

Director of the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico
