This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1500 words) describing briefly Mexico's cultural relations with 23 nations with which she has cultural exchange agreements. The reasons for cultural exchange are stated, such as the belief that cultural relations promote good relations among nations. The agreements concluded between Mexico and the other nations of Latin America are based on further strenghthening their common linguistic, social, cultural, and spiritual bonds. The agreement with the Soviet Union tends to emphasize science, technology, and sport; the one with Peru emphasizes a mutual interest in pre-Colombian archaeology and folklore; the one with Belgium lays heavy stress on cooperation between universities, laboratories, libraries, and museums. With the nations of Central America, it is more in the area of economic growth through technical assistance that agreements are concluded. The agreement with Israel is within the framework of multilateral projects. The promotion of the freest flow of information, documents, scholarships, experts, scientific expeditions, and all the other things that compromise cultural exchange are noted in this document.
