On 17 January 2024, the Director-General of ICCROM, Aruna Francesca Maria Gujral, had the honour of receiving H.E. Carlos Garcia de Alba, Ambassador of Mexico to Italy, also accredited to Albania, Malta, and San Marino. Accompanied by Official Mauricio Guerrero, Deputy Head of Mission in charge of multilateral relations, the meeting provided an opportunity to revisit the longstanding partnership established in 1961. Delving into historical graphic materials from ICCROM's archives, the discussions highlighted the pivotal role of Mexico in promoting professionals in heritage conservation.
Together, we shared a vision for the upcoming years, emphasizing our collective commitment to heritage conservation and protection as drivers of well-being, progress and sustainable development. The conversation underscored our joint enthusiasm for advancing capacity-building and knowledge-sharing efforts and fostering regional development.
We extend our gratitude to the Ambassador for the visit and look forward to future joint activities that will strengthen our collaboration with Mexico.
