The Secretary of Economy, Tatiana Clouthier, signed on Monday a Memorandum of Understanding with Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, president of Dubai Port World, with the aim of incorporating Mexico into the World Logistics Passport program.
The Ministry of Economy through its participation in the World Logistics Passport seeks to reduce trade costs, market diversification and the inclusion of companies that do not yet participate in international trade, through more and better business opportunities by facilitating and reward companies that participate in the program by creating a win-win environment.
This initiative was launched by the United Arab Emirates at the Davos World Forum in 2020 and its objective is to promote south-south trade, linking ports of countries in the Middle East, Asia, Latin America and Africa, using Dubai, one of the most important hubs of the world, in exchange for saving costs and time. This seeks to promote optimal trade routes to boost trade between these regions.
