Mexico and Persian Gulf states relations: Strengthening links (2012-2018)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


During the last two Mexican government administrations, since the year 2000, Mexico established links with Middle East countries, although not in a cohesive way. In addition, during the presidency of Peña Nieto (2012-2018), the Mexican government also strengthened its relationships with the Persian Gulf's Arab countries. The main purpose of this paper is to analyze how the government used economic diplomacy to attract the interest of these countries, since the approval of Mexican structural reforms. This study will allow us to assess how these approaches were produced, the agreements they led to, and its effects on the commercial relations.
