Mexico arranged cooperation actions with Russia, India, the UN and Turkey, which, in order to continue inspiring the new generations of Mexico, were timely disseminated by the agency through respective press releases, he recalled.

In addition, he added, the intense agenda of the global meeting included working meetings with space agencies such as NASA, through its representative Karen Feldstein, as well as with the heads of the agencies of Argentina, Raul Kulichevsky; Brazil, Carlos A. Texeira; Europe, Josef Aschbacher; France, Philippe Baptiste; Israel, Avi Blasberger, and Italy, Giorgio Saccoccia.

These meetings, he explained, can now be translated into joint collaboration actions, in order to continue with a great objective of the AEM, which is to share knowledge and provide space technology to Mexico, to contribute to the solution of problems here on earth, applying them to priority social tasks.
