At this private event, José Medina Mora, president of the Confederación Patronal de la República Mexicana (COPARMEX), addressed some of the challenges facing Mexico in the coming years — ranging from structural constraints on the country’s economy, including certain infrastructure, labor and fiscal policies, to the more immediate obstacles posed by the public policy choices of the Andrés Manuel López Obrador administration. With a focus on both long- and short-term challenges, Medina Mora examined the prospects for Mexico’s economic growth and business environment in the years ahead.
This event was sponsored by the Baker Institute Center for the United States and Mexico, the Greater Houston Partnership and the Asociación de Empresarios Mexicanos. Follow @BakerCtrUSMEX on Twitter, and join the conversation online with #BakerMexico.
