Bilateral treaties

Denmark and Mexico have in place the following bilateral treaties:

  • Treaty between Mexico and Denmark of July 19, 1827, which stipulated that the products of any country other than Denmark might be carried to Mexico from any part of the world without paying higher duties than were charged on the same articles imported in the vessels of the most-favored nations.[3]
  • Agreement concerning the reciprocal protection of works by authors, composers and artists. Signed at Mexico City on 12 July 1954.[4]
  • Agreement on economic co-operation. Signed at Mexico City on 5 December 1980.[5]

State visits

In 2007 President Felipe Calderón made the first visit by a Mexican president to Denmark.[1][6] In 2005, Queen Margrethe II was scheduled to visit Mexico but the trip was delayed until 2008.[7][8][9] Queen Margrethe II as princess had first visited the country in 1966.[10]


Danish companies that have invested in Mexico include: Maersk, Grundfos, Lego, Danisco, Novo Nordisk, FLSmidth and Danfoss.[1][11][12] Grundfos and Palsgaard have their factories in San Luis Potosí.[9][13]

In 2005, Mexico sold Denmark goods and services worth $US 8 million dollars and they grew to $US 130 million by 2007. Denmark exports to Mexico grew from $US 71 million to $US 320 million from 2005 to 2007.[9]
