Frédéric Garcia and Ian Welsh
Frédéric Garcia, advisor for industry to the head of staff of the president of Mexico, and formerly CEO of Airbus Mexico, and Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh discuss the importance of the manufacturing sector for the Mexican economy, and how Mexico has benefited from free trade with the US and Canada over the past few decades.
They discuss what innovation can do for a developing economy, particularly in terms of access for business to technology, the challenges from a rapidly growing population, and how to make the Sustainable Development Goals relevant.
