Mexican foreign minister takes a ride on the Delhi Metro inaugurates photo exhibition at Rajiv Chowk Metro Station
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Ms. Claudia Ruiz Massieu, inaugurated the photographic exhibition titled “Mexico Is”, a collection of 30 beautiful images of the country at Rajiv Chowk Metro station today which will be on display for a period of ten days.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Ms. Claudia Ruiz Massieu, took a ride on the Delhi Metro from Udyog Bhawan Metro station to arrive at Rajiv Chowk Metro station to inaugurate the photographic exhibition “Mexico Is”. During her trip in the Metro, she was accompanied by Dr. Mangu Singh, Managing Director of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
The Minister was impressed by the Delhi Metro system and highlighted the importance of public transportation, especially in the context of growing urban areas in developing countries like India and Mexico. The Metro in Mexico City is one of the largest transportation systems in the world, managing over 4 million travellers every day. The enormous volume it carries is an essential element for curbing air pollution in Mexico City.
At Rajiv Chowk, Minister Ruiz Massieu inaugurated the exhibition “Mexico Is”, a collection of 30 stunning photographs of all corners of the Latin American country, creating a visual summary of all the things Mexico can be. The exhibition was made possible thanks to the contribution of the packaging company UFLEX. These photographs attempt to transport the Indian commuter to these magical locations in Mexico for a moment, but have the greater objective of encouraging Indian tourists. “Mexico is becoming an attractive destination for the rapidly growing market of outbound Indian travellers”, said Minister Claudia Ruíz Massieu during her brief remarks to the public. “Mexico Is” represents a pictorial invitation for Delhiites to discover surprises about a place they thought they knew.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Mangu Singh, Managing Director, DMRC said: “DMRC has always endeavored to promote art and culture through display panels and exhibits at its premises – be it Indian or foreign. In fact, Rajiv Chowk Metro station has become a hub for showcasing international flavor to its commuters. In the past, Swedish and French embassies have also put up exhibitions for commuters’ delight at the same venue and we are happy to associate ourselves with the Mexican embassy this time.
