COFEMER, as the federal office responsible to propel the country’s policies in
regulatory improvement, is pleased to know that it contributes in the
strengthening of public servants and society’s capacities in regulatory matters.
In an unprecedented effort, COFEMER, together with LATIN-REG proposal, has
prepared a Certification Course to standardize goals among those who design
regulatory policies in order to favor technical analysis in regulatory
improvement, not only in Mexico, but also in other countries.
We at COFEMER and at LATIN-REG are convinced that the forming and improvement of
higher technical capacities will largely benefit the competitiveness of the
zone. We congratulate you by taking part in this project and urge you to reach
the goals set for this new challenge.
