The Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute and the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center were pleased to host a conversation with Graciela Márquez Colín on trade and economic development in Mexico. This event was the first of our 2018 election series featuring advisers to Mexico's top presidential candidates. 

Graciela Márquez Colín is a Professor at El Colegio de México and an adviser to MORENA and presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador. She has degrees in Economics from UNAM and Colegio de México, as well as a PhD in Economic History from Harvard University. She belongs to the Mexican National System of Researchers and is the author of several articles on trade policy, industrialization, inequality, and economic development. She has also published and co-published books on the economic history of Mexico and Latin America.

At a time where trade is at the forefront of U.S.-Mexico relations with the ongoing NAFTA talks, we were pleased to hold a discussion on this important topic.
