Britain's Cameron in Mexico charm offensive

Thursday, June 21, 2012

David Cameron launched a one-day charm offensive in Mexico City in a bid to boost British business interests in Mexico, the second largest economy in Latin America. Britain currently supplies less than 1% of Mexico's imports.

The prime minister's trade minister Lord Green also admitted that Britain for many years had got its priorities wrong by focusing excessively on Brazil at the expense of Mexico.

Cameron was in Mexico City to hold talks with outgoing President Felipe Calderon who had just completed the arduous task of chairing the G20 Summit in Los Cabos.
