Mexico heads to the polls on July 1 to elect a new president and congress. Please join us for a conversation and discussion of the election and key economic and energy issues featuring:
• Jeffrey Davidow. Former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico.
• Deborah Riner. Chief Economist, the American Chamber of Commerce of Mexico.
• Cecilia Aguillon. Director of Marketing & Government Relations, Kyocera Solar, Inc.
• Jeremy Martin. Energy Program Director, Institute of the Americas.
The discussion will be moderated by Ambassador Charles Shapiro, president of the Institute of the Americas.
These experts will examine issues surrounding this turning point in Mexican history:
– The polls in Mexico point to a double digit victory by Enrique Peña Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Will the race tighten and be closer than predicted?
– If, as predicted, the PRI wins the presidency and a majority in both houses of Congress, will public policy become an easier process to manage?
– Will the election cause any shifts or changes in the bilateral relationship between Mexico and the United States?
– What is the economic outlook for Latin America’s second largest economy? Is Mexico in a better position now to deal with a global crisis than in 2008?
– What does this election mean for Mexico’s energy sector in general and Pemex specifically?
– What impact will this election have on renewable energy in Mexico?Back to Upcoming Events
