Mexico rejoined the G77+China alliance, a move announced by Cuba at the conclusion of a recent global summit, with unanimous support from all participating countries.
In 1994, Mexico exited the group to become part of the OECD. Rodolfo Benitez revealed that upcoming talks will sort out the specifics of Mexico’s comeback.
Foreign Minister Alicia Bárcena spoke at the meeting’s inauguration. She emphasized Mexico’s ambition to contribute to a better global landscape.
She advocates increased cooperation among Southern nations to confront urgent matters like climate shifts and societal inequities.
Bárcena also urged enhanced worldwide collaboration in the scientific and educational fields.
The gathering included international figures such as Brazil’s Lula da Silva, Colombia’s Gustavo Petro, Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro, and UN Secretary António Guterres.
The G77+China forum consists of 134 member nations, mainly hailing from Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
Until now, Mexico was the sole Latin American nation absent from the alliance.
Alicia Bárcena revealed Mexico’s intentions during the Havana-based Global South summit.
The focus was on innovation, scientific progress, and brainstorming solutions.

It aims to strengthen cooperation among Southern nations to address global challenges like climate alterations and social disparities.
Bárcena emphasized the critical function of the G77+China in pursuing avenues for peaceful development.
Additionally, she called for increased global sharing in science and collaboration between educational institutions.
Bárcena expressed strong disagreement with the U.S. sanctions imposed on Cuba, labeling them as contrary to international norms.
