With the election of the two national points of contact points in 2016 the international approach of SGAC Mexico was consolidated. They primarily have two duties - One is to approach the Mexican youth within the country and the other to approach the youth abroad and liaise with the scientists and technologists of Mexican and Latinoamerican origin that are living abroad. This international approach has been done already by past NPoCs but it is now officially part of our working plan. Thanks to this strategy several ties have been created which strengthen international collaboration between research institutions, universities, companies and space agencies.
