The Palestinian International Cooperation Agency has just signed an agreement with the government of Mexico to build a strategic partnership and strengthen cooperation between the two countries through development programs.

According to the Wafa News Agency, technical expertise will be exchanged between PICA and the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation, and cooperative relations will be established in various fields, including education, communications and information technology, health, environment, and agriculture.

In a region rife with conflicts and now battling the health and socio-economic impacts of the pandemic, AMEXCID says such projects are vital for some degree of regional stability.

"The aim of developing cooperative relations as well as enhancing common interests between the two parties is to promote sustainable development and achieve the goals of International Development 2030, in cooperation with local and international partners," stated the Palestinian Authority's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates.
