Mexico City, 7 November 2012
ICC Mexico organized a consultation to discuss the initial recommendations of the ICC World Trade Agenda (WTA) initiative designed to inject global business leadership into the multilateral trade negotiation process.
The event is part of a series of consultations that have taken place on the World Trade Agenda since it's launch in September 2012. Global consultations give local business the opportunity to be heard and provide their input into WTA recommendations.
The meeting brought together 40 senior Mexican business representatives, including Luis de la Calle Pardo – Vice-Chair of the ICC Commission on Trade and Investment Policy – who contextualized the WTA initial recommendations with an analysis of Mexican trade priorities at unilateral, bilateral, regional and multilateral levels, with particular focus on economic relations between Mexico and Brazil.
The presentation of the initial WTA recommendations was positively received by the audience of business experts and led to lively questions-and-answers session on how these tie into other Mexican trade priorities, and the importance of trade and investment for Mexico’s and Latin America’s economies.
