ORU's Secretary-General visit to Mexico

Between the 6 and 10 of last July, ORU’s Secretary- General travelled to México with the goal of establishing stronger cooperation ties with the governments of the country’s states. The first visit took place in Toluca, capital of the State of Mexico, where Carles Llorens met Governor Eruviel Ávila. The meeting concluded with very positive outcomes, notably the initiation of the procedures for the incorporation of the state to ORU, and the governor’s commitment, publicly announced in press conference, to promote the accession of the other thirty Mexican States, respecting their sovereignty at all times.
