The World Affairs Council of DFW invites Gabriel Guerra Castellanos, founder and president of Mexico’s leading PR firm, Guerra Castellanos and Associates, and an op-Ed writer for El Universal to speak on Mexico: what lies ahead for the nation, its people and the North American relationship.
A model for emerging nations, rich in natural resources, equipped with one of Latin America’s largest and most sophisticated industrial bases and leading the way in strong macroeconomic policies and structural reforms – Mexico is designed to pave the way for sustained growth.
But domestic challenges have become the focus of some critics on the global front who cite slow official reaction to the massacre of 43 students at Ayotzinapa a year ago. They also criticize perceived poor management of Mexico’s rule of law, violence and poverty.
But in Mexico, the future is a place of hope.
