Ammon News - An academic delegation from the Colegio de México (COLMEX) has concluded a multi-day official visit to Jordan, during which it met with representatives from several Jordanian public and private universities.

The delegation included Dr. Silvia Giorguli, President of El Colegio de Mexico, Dr. Amaury Garcia, Director of the Center for Asian and African Studies, and three of their students, with the goal of discussing aspects of joint cooperation in a variety of academic, language studies, and research fields.

Since its inception in 1940, El Colegio de México (COLMEX) has received numerous awards. COLMEX operates through research centers staffed by a highly qualified academic team.

Its eight academic centers offer Master’s and PHD degrees in history, sociology, economics, political science, linguistics, literature, Asian and African studies, urban studies, demography, and environmental studies.

In addition, there is a master's program in gender studies, as well as bachelor's degrees in economics, public administration, and international relations.
There are also centers for Historical Studies, Asian and African Studies, and Social Studies at COLMEX.

Dr. Giorguli, President of COLMEX, expressed her pleasure at meeting the presidents of Jordanian universities and expressed her desire to collaborate with them in the fields of international studies, languages, and comparative research in the social, human, historical, and cultural sciences.

El Colegio de México is a public university that focuses on the teaching and research of the social sciences and humanities, according to Dr. Amaury Garcia, the director of the Center for Asian and African Studies.

For the past sixty years, it has had an interest in studying the countries of the Middle East, and it now has one of the few postgraduate programs in that region in Latin America.

On the other hand, it is a well-known center for Mexican and Latin American studies, so it could help people in the Middle East learn more about that part of the world.
"With this visit, we hope to establish a direct connection with our Jordanian academic counterparts in order to fulfill both objectives," Dr. Amaury added.

The academic delegation was accompanied by Mexican Ambassador in Amman Roberto Rodriguez Hernandez, who emphasized the depth of Jordanian-Mexican relations and their development in all fields, particularly academic cooperation.

He stated that twelve agreements have been signed between Jordanian and Mexican universities in the areas of scientific research, academic exchanges, and student exchanges, with additional agreements under review or in the process of signing.

Rodriguez further stated that Jordan is known for stability and progress and is regarded as a gateway to the Middle East and the other countries in the region, making the visit of the Mexican academic delegation of COLMEX and its meetings with Jordanian universities an opportunity in which the two friendly nations would benefit.

He also emphasized that his nation can assist Jordan in building relationships with Latin America, which will ultimately have an impact on developing and fostering ties in the areas of education, business, and tourism.

The Mexican delegation met with the University of Jordan and its Center for Strategic Studies, Yarmouk University, the Middle East University, Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan, and the World Islamic Sciences and Education University. The discussions centered on ways and areas of cooperation, as well as preparations for memorandums of understanding and bilateral agreements that would strengthen academic relations and cooperation.

The presidents of Jordanian universities stressed the importance of building bridges of cooperation with Mexican universities so that both parties can benefit from social sciences research, exchange of knowledge, and scholarships.

The Jordanian-Mexican Friendship Association's president and some of its members, H.E. Ambassador Roberto Rodriguez, and the Mexican academic delegation were honored at a reception hosted by H.E. Dr. Barakat Awajan, the former minister of culture, following COLMEX's visit to Jordan. According to Dr. Awajan, the Jordanian-Mexican Friendship Association will support initiatives and efforts that will improve relations between the two nations.
