Please join the Woodrow Wilson Center, the Inter-American Dialogue and the Council of the Americas for a wide ranging conversation on the Mexican economy with Ernesto Cordero, Secretary of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) for the Government of Mexico. The conference will take place in the 6th Floor Dining Room at the Woodrow Wilson Center from 3:30-5pm. It will not be webcast.
Mexico is just beginning to recover from what was one of the deepest recessions of any country in the region in this recent global financial meltdown. Our conversation will focus on the impact of this recession, on the course of recovery, and on what obstacles remain.
Ernesto Cordero previously served as Secretary of Social Development from January 2008 to December 2009. He has also served as Undersecretary of the Budget at the SHCP, and as Undersecretary for Energy Planning at the Secretariat of Energy.
We very much hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a stimulating exchange.
