France is opening a consulate general in Monterrey, Mexico, today. It will serve our fellow citizens and expand France’s economic and cultural presence in three very dynamic northern Mexican states: Nuevo León, Coahuila and Tamaulipas.
The Consulate General of France in Monterrey will host an office of the French Institute for Latin America (IFAL), a Campus France space, and a branch of the Franco-Mexican Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It will work to strengthen university cooperation, especially with the bilingual Franco-Mexican Technological University of Monterrey.
Stepping up our presence in Mexico’s second-largest metropolitan area reflects France’s commitment to its strategic partnership with Mexico and its desire to strengthen and deepen our ties with all actors in that country.
