Message From the Under-Secretary for Latin America and the Caribbean
Secretariat of Foreign Affairs, Mexico
Cultural expressions transcend nationalities, languages and ideologies -let alone borders-, especially in a highly integrated world as the one we live in. This exhibition is a perfect example of the power of music to serve as a lingua franca, and at the same time, it reflects the closeness and friendship Mexico and Jamaica have shared for more than 40 years.

Message From the Jamaican Ambassador
The governments of Jamaica and Mexico have enjoyed many years of collaboration in the implementation of bilateral cooperation agreements. These include the important area of cultural cooperation, which continues to be elaborated in ongoing bi-national talks.
The Embassy of Jamaica is pleased to partner with the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores of Mexico in the presentation of this Reggae Month 2014 celebration of the International Reggae Poster Contest Exhibition. It provides a timely vehicle for emphasizing aspects of Jamaican culture here in Mexico, and a recognition that the music that Jamaica gave to the world remains a relevant instrument of progress and social enjoyment.

Ambassador of Jamaica
