President Enrique Peña Nieto participated in the business meeting of the Thirteenth Summit of the Pacific Alliance.
The president said that the economic model of trade liberalization and integration that Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Peru have been promoting for seven years has been very successful, although it has also faced challenges. ¨ I believe that one of its great challenges or the biggest challenge is how we manage to have a growing economy, an economy open to the world, an economy of expansion of freedoms, but also, where there is greater social justice, inequality gaps are closed, and there is a greater expansion to the liberties and opportunities of each citizen, "said President Peña Nieto. He emphasized when mentioning that those who make up the Pacific Alliance, join efforts based on their affinities.
The four countries are democratic nations that believe in the rule of law, respect for individual liberties and human rights. "We agree that the route to development is precisely the market economy and from this coincidence is that we have created precisely this Pacific Alliance, which is distinguished, perhaps from many other integration efforts, some vain , others more successful, but undoubtedly ours has been a very important reference ", affirmed President Enrique Peña Nieto. He also said that trade agreements with other countries are important for Mexico.
And so he referred to the renegotiation of the free trade agreement with the United States and Canada
"It has been a process that has been talked about a lot, sensitive, elected, critical, but when we are sitting at the table, we are talking about what should be done and what will allow the three countries to modernize update and detonate more opportunity”, said President Peña Nieto.
