GLOBAL FORUM: AMLO's First 100 Days
The Honorable Antonio Garza

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Details

6:30 PM Reception
7:00 PM Conversation and Q&A

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s presidency and his pledge of the Fourth Transformation for Mexico are underway. López Obrador, also known as AMLO, won his election by a vast majority and is off to a strong start with control of Congress and enough state legislatures to push through constitutional reforms. Just in the first month of his presidency he has reduced his presidential salary and asked his cabinet to skip the World Economic Forum in Davos to focus on efforts to fight corruption at home.  

Antonio Garza served as the United States Ambassador to Mexico from 2002 to 2009, focusing his work on U.S. interests in Mexico, international business development, and broadening and deepening the dialogue between the two countries. Mexico bestowed on him the Águila Azteca, the highest award granted to foreigners, in 2009.

The Ambassador currently serves as Counsel to the law firm of White & Case in Mexico City and is a member of the Board of Trustees of Southern Methodist University and The Economic Advisory Council to the George W. Bush Presidential Center.
