Brexit is opportunity to strengthen ties with Mexico: Ambassador

Mexico (Notimex) - The UK's exit from the European Union will help Britain deepen ties with Mexico and develop their current relationship, said British ambassador in Mexico, Duncan Taylor.

Once the Brexit process ends, the UK will be ready to negotiate a trade deal with Mexico, Taylor said.

"It's easier to negotiate a deal with one country, instead of a block of 28 countries, because each one has its own interests. We have the opportunity to do something ambitious and good for both countries," the ambassador added.

"We are seeing an increase in our bilateral trade. Britain's exports to Mexico grew 22 percent, and a similar figure for Mexican exports into the UK," said Taylor.
