Mexico’s Economic Challenges Under López Obrador


On Dec. 1, 2018, Andrés Manuel López Obrador will assume the Mexican presidency, becoming the first leftist to lead the country in decades. What will this mean for the Mexican economy and for North America in light of a recently renegotiated NAFTA?

Join us for a talk with Francisco Gil-Díaz, former Mexican Secretary of Finance, who will discuss Mexico’s economic panorama and the challenges and opportunities for the incoming administration. Gil-Díaz is one of the most influential Mexican economists who served as Secretary of Finance in the cabinet of President Vicente Fox. Previously, he served as the President of Telefónica Mexico. Currently, he serves as president of Avanzia.
