The Mexico Tourism Board is to close all of its international offices, including the UK branch.
In an email circulated to media, Vicente Salas, director for UK and a number of other markets for the Mexico Tourism Board, confirmed his last day in the office would be February 28.
“I feel very fortunate for having had the opportunity to work with the British tourism industry and with all of you,” he said.
“It was a pleasure and a privilege to work and promote the wonders of Mexico in your incredible country, Great Britain.”
Salas added he intended to continue with tourism promotion, not only of Mexico but potentially of other destinations as well.
He said he would remain in the UK for the time being.
It comes after the Brazilian Tourist Board, Embratur, closed all of its offices outside of Brazil last November.
