During the past few months the Chamber facilitated a variety of very successful events that continued to reinforce our commitment to provide our members with valuable networking and informational opportunities to advance business relations between the United States and Mexico.   

The period started in April with a remarkable conference about mining in Mexico in which Norberto Roque Díaz de León, General Coordinator of Mining at the Ministry of Economy of Mexico, discussed the investment opportunities, as well as the regulatory framework and support mechanisms that exist in the country’s mining sector. During the same month, the Chamber organized the Mexico’s Economic Outlook seminar, which brought together different perspectives from various market participants that included experts on economics, sovereign debt rating, fixed-income, foreign exchange and equity strategy.

In May, we were pleased to have Jesus Reyes Heroles, the CEO of PEMEX, who addressed the business and financial community about the company’s current situation and perspectives for the future. Mr. Reyes Heroles highlighted that while the state-owned company faces great challenges in terms of investment and preservation of facilities, it is in a financially stable condition, and his administration will make every effort to maximize opportunities to fulfill the company’s potential. Another successful event that took place in May was the conference with Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico City’s Mayor, who shared some of the economic development strategies his administration is using to accelerate the growth of the City. Mr. Ebrard’s presentation focused on his team’s plan to enhance human capital, address infrastructure needs, and implement strategic planning tools to make Mexico City a more competitive and equitable City.
