President Sauli Niinistö met with Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto and discussed bilateral relations and further development of economic cooperation during his state visit to the country on Tuesday, according to a statement from the Office of the President.
 
“Finland and Mexico have an extensive history of advantageous cooperation, which we greatly value. We share the same values and collaborate in many international contexts, such as in the UN and in climate change negotiations,” said President Niinistö at a press conference after the talks. 
 
Niinistö also said that Mexico is Latin America's most interesting investment destination. 
 
“Mexico is one of the most interesting targets for investment in Latin America, and the reforms in progress are increasing its attractiveness. There are already many Finnish companies with a presence in Mexico, for instance in the ICT, energy and clean tech sectors,” said President Niinistö 
 
On his part, Pena Nieto pointed to Finnish excellence in education and the forestry industry. 
 
Mexico is currently making substantial investments in infrastructure and in energy, telecommunications and education; these offer potential for foreign enterprises. Finland’s exports to Mexico have tripled within a few years, and there is still plenty of growth potential. At the moment, there are about 30 Finnish businesses operating in the country, said the statement. 
 
The two presidents also discussed the development of rule of law in Mexico as well as the case of the human rights activist Jyri Jaakkola who was murdered in 2010
