Op-ed: Mexico’s secretary of economy: We deserve a seat at trade table

May 4, 2012

The Dallas Morning News, Bruno Ferrari, 5/4/12

While governments and the public have been concentrating on challenges to global financial recovery, a historic economic alliance has been budding in meetings held around the world. The alliance is called the TPP, for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an ambitious accord to promote a significant expansion of trade among Pacific nations, and this week Dallas hosts the 12th round of TPP negotiations.

What exactly is the TPP? It is composed of nine nations — the United States, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia , New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. Their aim is to create a free-trade zone that not only eliminates tariff and nontariff barriers to goods and services but also develops regional supply chains to speed the production, sale and movement of goods, coordinates regulatory regimes, helps small- and medium-sized firms export more, and ensures state-owned enterprises compete fairly with private companies.

The TPP negotiations are the most important trade talks in the world, and the TPP accession process requires consensus. The United States should take the lead to give Mexico a seat at the table.

Mexicanos aceptarían envío de agentes de EU (In Spanish)

December 18, 2011

El Universal, 12/18/11

De los mexicanos que están a favor de recibir ayuda financiera
estadounidense para combatir el narcotráfico y el crimen organizado,
57% apoyaría esta idea incluso si el país del norte pidiera a cambio
enviar sus agentes a México.

Lo anterior lo revela el reporte Las Américas y el Mundo 2010-2011,
coordinado por el Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas
(CIDE) y publicado en septiembre de este año.

Los resultados del informe se derivan de una encuesta representativa
hecha en 2010 a cinco países latinoamericanos —Brasil, Colombia,
Ecuador, México y Perú— con el fin de recabar información ´sobre las opiniones, actitudes, creencias, intereses, aspiraciones y valores de sus ciudadanos sobre las relaciones con el mundo.
