“The Consulate in Douglas has grown tremendously in the past five years and more responsibilities have come with this expansion,” he said. “So our mission here is to keep providing a good service to our nationals, but also we wish to strengthen the relationship between both cities through cultural activities that anyone, being American or Mexican can enjoy.”
Holguin remarked it is very important for them as a Consulate in the U.S. to create this type of bond to let everybody know about the richness of the Mexican Culture and let them have a global vision about Mexico, and not just about border issues.
