President Enrique Peña Nieto inaugurated Nestlé’s child nutrition factory: Nantli.
Over the past four years, Mexico has received $120 billion dollars in Foreign Direct Investment, 40 percent more than the amount invested in Mexico during the same period in the previous administration.
“There are investments and job creation in Mexico, we have low inflation, there is greater dynamism in the domestic economy, and this ultimately impacts very positively on the quality of life and well-being of Mexican society”. EPN
