· He said that Mexico has shown that it can transform itself in a democracy.

· In the Plenary Session: A New Agenda for Latin America, he declared that reforms provide the best protection from the global scenario of volatility and risk aversion.

· In Davos, he also met with leaders of global media and international companies with a presence or interest in investing in Mexico.

During his participation in the Plenary Session: A New Agenda for Latin America, within the framework of the World Economic Forum in Davos, President Enrique Peña Nieto said that in Mexico, “We are clear that beyond the current scenario of falling oil prices, we are committed and determined to implement Energy Reform in a timely manner.”

He said that, “The fact that today we have low oil prices, will not curb, limit, or stop the implementation of Energy Reform in the stage that must now be undertaken.”

The president said that Mexico has shown that it can be transformed into a democracy and recalled that for 80 years our country has enjoyed political stability. “We have consolidated our democracy. We have provided scope for the different voices, different ideologies and different ways of thinking to be expressed politically,” he declared.

He explained that, “It is in this scenario where, in a democracy, we can reach an enormous political agreement. I wish to highlight the fact that this was achieved three years ago when my administration began in December 2012.”

He said, “Almost immediately, with the participation of the main political forces of my country, we managed to set an agenda for change and transformation, which had been postponed for many years.”

At a session moderated by Moisés Naim, a member of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the Mexican president said that, “In recent years, we have proved and shown ourselves and the world that we can transform ourselves and do so positively.”

Thus, he added, “We are on that path. I'm really optimistic how Mexico has been transformed, and about the very promising future that awaits our country in the coming years, on the basis of what all Mexicans have built together.”

He explained the course that has been charted from now  at the end of his administration:

First, "Preserve our strength and our condition, our macroeconomic bases.” It is our main priority to maintain this condition.”

Second. "Ensure the proper, efficient implementation of structural reforms, including Energy Reform.”

President Enrique Peña Nieto also noted that in the face of the adverse global scenario, “Mexico is still moving and growing financially.”

He noted that, “Whereas other countries are experiencing an economic slowdown, in Mexico we are growing. Although we have obviously not reached the desired levels, our economic growth certainly contrasts with those elsewhere in the world, particularly in Latin America.”

He underlined the fact that there are, “At least three reforms that provide the best protection from the current global scenario: Energy Reform, Telecommunications Reform and Financial Reform.”

Energy Reform, he explained, “Breaks the mold Mexico had for the past 50 years; this sector, the exploitation of our resources in the subsoil, hydrocarbons, has been opened up, like the electricity sector, to foster competition, which will benefit users and society, so that these inputs can be purchased in better conditions and at lower prices for families, trade and industry.”

Meanwhile, Telecommunications Reform opens up the sector to more competition to provide mobile and fixed telephony as well as Internet services, and thus increase our competitiveness.

The president said that Financial Reform, “Underpins a need we had as a country. Although we had a  robust financial system, credit levels in our country were undoubtedly far below those of other economies. And today the level of credit in Mexico is growing.”

In the presence of the economic, political and financial leaders attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, President Enrique Peña Nieto stated that the reforms and structural changes agreed in 2012, “Are now a reality,” which, he said, “Also gives us greater strength in the face of the global scenario of high volatility, uncertainty and risk aversion.”

He explained that, “Mexico is better prepared to cope with this scenario. The reforms are not theoretical. No. They are expressed in benefits. There will eventually undoubtedly be benefits, particularly once the reforms have been fully implemented, but even now, significant benefits have been felt.

In this regard, he recalled: "I recall that the issues discussed in the political campaign of 2012, in which I ran and won, are issues that many people thought would be impossible to achieve. These reforms and structural changes are now a reality.”

After the plenary session, President Enrique Peña Nieto attended a meeting with Media Leaders’ Community, in which editorialists, directors, editors and owners of global media participated, and subsequently met with members of the Business Interaction Group on Mexico, comprising leaders of international companies that already have a presence or are interested in investing in Mexico.

This last meeting was also attended by Secretary of Finance Luis Videgaray Caso, Secretary of Economy Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal, and Governor of the Bank of Mexico Agustín Carstens.

Immediately afterwards and as his last activity in Davos, President Enrique Peña Nieto met with Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab at the Congress Center, the venue of the meeting of the world’s economic and financial leaders.
