Webcast available

Webcast Recap

Please note this event took place at the Atlantic Council.

In just over two months, Mexicans will elect their next president. This election comes at a historic turning point for Mexico and U.S.-Mexico relations. How would a government led by José Antonio Meade navigate NAFTA negotiations and the broader U.S.-Mexico relationship at this pivotal moment?

The Wilson Center's Mexico Institute and the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center were pleased to hold the second in a three-part series with advisors to each of the top presidential candidates for a conversation on the future of Mexico and key bilateral issues. Dr. Sergio Alcocer is the Former Under Secretary for North America at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Government Program Coordinator to presidential candidate José Antonio Meade. He discussed the priorities of the PRI party with a special emphasis on NAFTA negotiations and the future of U.S.-Mexico collaboration.

This event followed an April 17 conversation with Dr. Graciela Márquez Colín, research professor at El Colegio de México and advisor to MORENA presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who was designated to be his secretary of economy if elected. On May 2, we will host Dr. Salomón Chertorivski, advisor to PAN Presidential Candidate Ricardo Anaya, at the Atlantic Council. Additional information will be released at a later time.
