World Economic Forum President Børge Brende to Receive Mexico’s Highest Honour

New York City, USA 24 September 2018 – The President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, will award Børge Brende, President of the World Economic Forum, with the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle. This honour is given to non-Mexican citizens in recognition of their outstanding service to Mexico and the global community. The ceremony will be held at the World Economic Forum’s Sustainable Development Impact Summit 2018.

Brende is being recognized for his strong commitment to world economic development. The Mexican government acknowledges that, throughout his distinguished international career and particularly as President of the World Economic Forum as well as in his previous capacity as Foreign Minister of Norway, Brende has consistently promoted dialogue with government, business and civil society globally on such priority issues for Mexico as trade liberalization, sustainable development and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Brende has also promoted the principles of democracy, freedom, free trade, gender equality, human rights, peace, and development. During his tenure as Foreign Minister of Norway, Mexico re-opened its embassy in Oslo, in 2014, thereby establishing a bilateral political consultation mechanism between Mexico and Norway.
