Mexico, Oct. 11 (Notimex).- Mexico will expand and strengthen its presence in the Forum of Science and Technology in Society (STS Forum) in Japan, and in other international forums focused on scientific development and innovation, announced Marcelo Ebrard.
Ebrard Casaubon, proposed to occupy the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE, for its acronym in Spanish) in the next government, is a working tour of Japan, in order to promote Japanese investments in Mexico and seek the arrival of the latest technology to boost national development during the next administration headed by the president-elect, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
In his Twitter account @m_ebrard, the former head of government of the then Federal District published: "Countries, companies and institutions that participate as part of the effort that makes STS forum possible. Evident Japanese predominance but also broad global participation. Next year Mexico will be more present in this and other science, technology and innovation events. "
He indicated that during his visit to Japan, the interesting ideas he observed in Tokyo include "electric single-seater vehicles that function like the ecobici system in Mexico".
He explained that in Tokyo, these vehicles are one of the mobility alternatives that have been launched successfully.
He explained that during his stay in Japan he has found open doors, many new ideas and useful experiences: "I saw few patrols and police (it is one of the countries with more social cohesion and lower crime). Very orderly public space, since the philosophy is that the public determines the success of the private.
Another aspect that drew the attention of Ebrard Casaubon is that the Japanese hardly eat flour, sugar or drink soda, so they have almost 84 years of life expectancy, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
He also stressed that public toilets "are impeccable, because in the anonymity of the toilet everyone cares for cleanliness, it is a culture of common rules respected," said the next chancellor.
On the same Twitter account @m_ebrard, Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon wrote: "In addition to promoting investments and technology, the visit of the last few days has allowed us to know very useful experiences regarding the challenges we have in Mexico. Simplicity and vision to build the common space we call the future. Thanks Japan! See you soon".
