Mexican Presidential Candidate Series: A Conversation with José Antonio Meade Advisor Sergio Alcocer 

In just over two months, Mexicans will elect their next president. This election comes at a historic turning point for Mexico and US-Mexico relations. How would a government led by José Antonio Meade navigate NAFTA negotiations and the broader US-Mexico relationship at this pivotal moment?
Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and the Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute for 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 will discuss the priorities of the PRI party with a special emphasis on NAFTA negotiations and the future of US-Mexico collaboration.
This event follows 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. Additional information will be released at a later time.
