Mexico foreign affairs minister to visit India from Aug 16

The Financial Express

New Delhi: Ahead of the climate change negotiations, to be held in Cancun, Mexico, Patricia Espinosa, the country's foreign affairs minister and chairperson, 16th Conference of the Parties (COP 16) to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), will visit New Delhi from August 16.

Espinosa will have several meetings, both at official as well as business level, to understand the views of various Indian stakeholders on the negotiation process as well as their expectations from the forthcoming COP 16 in Cancun. Both sides are expected to firm up the agenda for the two-day ministerial meeting on climate change in November. India at the meet will try to push climate talks forward by focusing on winning agreement on sharing clean technologies – a sticky issue that divides rich and poor countries.

The November 8-9 talks are aimed at clarifying rules on sharing future innovations and existing technologies involving contentious intellectual property rights (IPR) issues.

The talks will come just weeks before a UN climate meeting in Mexico and are an attempt to breathe new life into global climate negotiations after last December's Copenhagen summit fell short of agreeing a treaty. Senior officials told FE, “The climate change negotiations to be held from November 29-December 10 are an effort to advance the international policy dialogue on climate change and is held each year under the auspices of the UNFCCC.”

Both the countries are expected to raise free trade agreement issue as Mexico is keen on foreign direct investment from India in the mining sector.
