The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Institute of Mexicans Abroad, develops various programs and projects to support the Mexicans established beyond our borders.
In the cultural and artistic area, IME is promoting programs for Mexican communities abroad, seeking to reassess and strengthen their sense of identity and belonging to our country and the pride in their roots and rich cultural heritage. Through these activities we contribute to their development in host societies, and it serves their need to maintain their ties to Mexico and to transmit the richness of their country of origin to people in their host country and abroad.
On the occasion of the commemoration of the Bicentennial of Independence and the Centennial of the Revolution, IME promotes the Global Mariachi Contest "Sones de Mariachi por el Mundo" open to people of any nationality and the First Global Short Film Competition recorded with cell phone for Mexicans and people of Mexican origin living abroad.
