(COMCE) of the WestMiguel Ángel Landeros Volquarts, after the monthly meeting, in which the special guest was the national vice president of this business organization, Guillermo Romo Romero.

He pointed out that the fact that the President of the country, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, did not attend the IX Summit of the Americas leaves a negative precedent.

“We are concerned because our main trading partner is the United States, and that we do not attend the important forums that they promote, I think that leads to a larger issue. I think that today more than ever we must look at where our interests are and where our alliances should be, and not underestimate democracy and free trade”.

Landeros Volquarts explained that during these last three years it has been very difficult for COMCE to position Mexico in the international environment; however, as a business organization, they will continue to open doors to strengthen the country’s foreign trade.

He urged the Government and especially businessmen to take advantage of the 13 trade agreements, with more than 54 countries, that Mexico has signed, and for which they must consider that they have with the United States.

For his part, Guillermo Romo Romero, who was one of the few Mexicans who participated in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last May, lamented the very low participation of Mexicans in this event, in which issues of of paramount importance, such as the serious food crisis that is looming throughout the world.
