Both sides signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on space cooperation under which they will also collaborate on capacity development and other mutually beneficial areas related to cooperation in outer space for peaceful purposes.
India, which depends largely on import of hydrocarbons, is the largest buyer of Mexican crude oil in Asia and the third largest globally. With Mexico embarking on reforms in the energy sector, both sides discussed possibilities of cooperation with private and public sector companies in India looking for opportunities in the sector.
