    -- as of 2007

    In its efforts to revitalize its economy and open up to international competition, Mexico has sought closer relations with the United States, Western Europe and the Pacific Basin.

    Mexico actively participates in several international organizations. It is a supporter of the United Nations and Organization of American States systems, and President Fox pledged in January 2001 to submit a bid for a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. Although Mexico pursues its interests through a number of additional ad hoc international bodies, it has, in general, been selective in its membership in international organizations. It declined, for example, to become a member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

    Nevertheless, Mexico does seek to diversify its diplomatic and economic relations. It acceded to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in 1986 and joined the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) in 1993. Mexico became the first Latin American member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in April 1994, and a founding member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 1996.

    On July 1, 2000, Mexico signed a free-trade agreement with the European Union (EU) aimed at gradually reducing tariffs between the two regions until 2007, as well as cooperating in the promotion of democratic principles, respect for human rights, environmental issues, and anti-narcotic efforts.

    Although educational levels in Mexico have improved substantially in recent decades, the country still faces daunting problems. Education is one of the Mexican government's highest priorities and is being decentralized from federal to state authority in order to improve accountability.

    Education is mandatory from ages six through 18. The increase in school enr ollments during the past two decades has been dramatic. In 1994, an estimated 59 percent of the population between six and 18 was enrolled in school. Primary (including preschool) enrollment in public schools from 1970-94 increased from less than 10 million to 17.5 million. Enrollment at the secondary public school level rose from 1.4 million in 1972 to as many as 4.5 million in 1994. A rapid increase also occurred in higher education. From 1959 until 1994, college enrollments rose from 62,000 to more than 1.2 million.

    Despite the fact that education spending has risen dramatically, given increased enrollment, a net decline has occurred in per student expenditures. The Mexican government concedes that despite this progress, two million children still do not have access to basic education. The literacy rate of Mexico's population age 15 and over was estimated to be about 91 percent.

    I felt risk-free whilst i replaced into there those days. basically take care of it like being in any huge city - don't be by myself in public at night, and don't drink too lots ;) the only time I felt no longer as risk-free as being in NYC replaced into each and every time I observed the police
