UK seeks to bolster Mexico and Colombia trade

Monday, February 3, 2014

British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is leading a business delegation to Colombia and Mexico in a bid to forge stronger trade links with the two countries.

The Deputy Prime Minister will be joined by Conservative Investment Minister Lord Livingston and Mexico Trade Envoy Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Bonham-Carter, as well as more than 40 UK business leaders, seeking to tap into the two countries' investment potential.

Speaking ahead of his visit, he said: "The UK took its eye off the Latin American ball, and as a result we've fallen behind many of our other European competitors."
