González recognized that Mexico has challenges as a result of political change in the United States, but observed that Mexico is strong enough to withstand it.
“It is one of the most attractive countries in the world for investments, with a young population.
And Mexico is a vibrant country with great strengths. Its 120 million people are very young and fully motivated to do great things. Mexico is stronger than most people think, thanks to its population, its close relationship with the U.S, the dynamics of its industries and its business community.”
