Mexico intends to actively participate in the G77+China to strengthen the bloc's negotiating position in a complex international scenario.
"Mexico will analyse the group's agenda to find areas in which it can contribute, uniting to act in a single voice," said the Mexican Foreign Ministry in a statement, as reported by IANS, a partner of TV BRICS.
As soon as the authorities identify the relevant topics and forums, "Mexico will present its request to participate in the work of the G77+China," said the Ministry in a statement.
The move reflects "a sincere desire to strengthen the bloc's negotiating position amid a complex international environment," added the Ministry.
Mexico hopes to "continue contributing to giving a voice to the peoples of the South in the search for development paths that do not exclude any country," said the Ministry in a statement.
At the G77+China Summit of Heads of State and Government held in Havana, Cuba, on Friday and Sunday, Mexican Foreign Minister Alicia Barcena said that it was "a great honour" for Mexico to have been invited by the host country to take part in the meeting.
Barcena also emphasised the importance of the bloc's role as a coordination mechanism to address the most pressing issues on the international agenda for the Global South.
The Group of 77, a group of developing countries formed at the First Conference of UNCTAD (Geneva, 1964), originally comprised 77 States. It now comprises the majority of developing States (133 States). It consists of three regional subgroups: Asian, African and Latin American. The PRC usually appears with the Group of 77. In this case, the Group's statement indicates that it is a joint position of the G-77 and the PRC. The Group coordinates the position of developing countries at international conferences on economic issues, develops policy papers and statements on topical issues of international economic relations.
