Mexico and South Korea join efforts to boost aerospace industry

MEXICO - In order to strengthen bilateral cooperation schemes in education and economic development with a focus on the aerospace industry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) held a meeting with members of the Korean Aerospace Research Institute (KARI).

As one of the fastest growing and most in-demand industries in both countries, Sang Ryool-Lee, president of KARI, highlighted the interest in exploring new binational programs with institutions such as the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (Amexcid) and the Latin American and Caribbean Space Agency (ALCE).

The meeting was attended by Daniel Cámara Avalos, Director General of Regional Organizations and Mechanisms of the SRE; Fernando González Saiffe, Director General Asia-Pacific; Luisa Solchaga López, Director General of Cooperation Policies; Gustavo Cabrera Rodríguez, Mexico's representative to the ALCE, among others.

The existence of the "Women in the sky" program developed by Amexid was another of the aspects highlighted, as it is an active training platform with several advantages for the aerospace industry and new trends, through which 50 women from 17 Latin American and Caribbean countries have been trained, according to the SRE in a press release.
