Irish leader calls for new economic models in Mexico visit

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Irish President Michael D. Higgins used a historic appearance at Mexico’s biggest business summit to call for new economic models that balance sustainable growth with social inclusion and ending poverty.

The first European head of state to speak at the influential Cumbre de Negocios conference in Guadalajara, Higgins told hundreds of Mexican businesspeople that Ireland was resolved “not to waste the chastening experience of recession and to learn the positive lessons for the future”.

He also encouraged Mexican companies to invest in Ireland, which offered “enormous potential” to companies as “a gateway to the European market,” he said.
