The Mexico Business Summit was created in 2003 at the initiative of Miguel Aleman Velasco, who at the time was the Governor of the state of Veracruz. Velasco serves as chairman of the Summit, providing leadership and guidance for the development of the annual meeting. The Summit was created in response to the need for a non-partisan, independent platform that joins political and business leaders, along with valuable ideas and media personalities to think of Mexico´s future in a changing global context.
The Summit has now become the number one business and economic event not only in Mexico, but in the entire region.
The Mexico Business Summit is the platform of choice for outcome-oriented discussions of crucial challenges that shape the future of Mexico and its relationships with its main economic partners. The mission of the Summit is:
To sustain a constructive dialogue between political and business leaders, civil society, and the media, that contributes to addressing Mexico’s challenges and helps boost growth and greater social cohesion;
to help identify new business opportunities and create new relationships among the business community in Mexico and between Mexican and foreign business leaders;
to generate new initiatives relevant to the economic, political, and social context in Mexico;
to provide participants with insight on developmental trends that shape the global, economic, and geopolitical context and impacts Mexico’s own trajectory.
