Bolivian President Luis Arce arrived in Mexico on an official visit late Tuesday, March 23, as an honored guest of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).

On the morning of Wednesday, March 24, Arce, a staunch socialist and diehard follower of ousted Bolivian President Evos Morales, was received by AMLO at the National Palace, where the two heads of states offered a joint press conference.

On Thursday, March 25, Arce will participate as a guest of honor and distinguished speaker in the commemoration of the Day of the Victory of Chakán Putum in Champotón, Campeche.
The ceremony, which is part of a larger month-long celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mexico’s consolidation of its independence, will commemorate the historic resistance of the country’s indigenous peoples during the Spanish invasion.

This visit to Mexico is the first international visit that Arce has taken since he took office in November 2020, although he did spend time in the country in late 2019, when he was granted political asylum here along with Morales.
