Mexico, almost five years after its constitutional reform, is once again at a pivotal point in its history. A growing middle class, increased venture capital investments and tech savvy workers poise the perfect environment for a more positive and prosperous season in Mexico. The world awaits a modernized NAFTA as the incoming López Obrador administration prepares to enter office in December with a focus on improving opportunities for those left behind. The July 1 election reflected peoples’ disenchantment with the status quo. The incoming government must now deliver and address issues ranging from stagnant wages to a spike in crime and unresolved corruption scandals. From trade and the economy, to energy and security, creative solutions will be needed to seize the moment for Mexico and to build consensus on the future of the country’s global trajectory.
