Mexico’s Economic and Political Outlook
August 10 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
President-Elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador won with almost 54 percent of the vote on July 1. This historic election comes at a critical moment for Mexico’s future. López Obrador campaigned on a transformative vision and will face several immediate tasks upon taking the office on December 1, including: establishing new mechanisms to combat corruption; reducing crime in the short term while tackling its root causes in the long term; creating new economic opportunities while finalizing NAFTA talks; and navigating the shifting nature of US-Mexico relations.
As the transition of power begins, we will discuss the priorities he laid out on the campaign trail and the resulting road ahead. Join us for a discussion on what we might expect from Mexico’s next president on some of the most pressing issues facing the country today. What will he prioritize first? How will he work across sectors? What will be Mexico’s role in the region and beyond?
This event is off-the-record, and for members and invited guests of USMBC only. Registration is required.
