Televisa's Azcárraga urges Slim to face competition

Friday, March 23, 2012

Emilio Azcárraga, chairman of Mexican broadcaster Grupo Televisa, urged billionaire Carlos Slim to stop what he said were actions to block competition in the country’s telecommunications market.

Televisa won’t oppose the Mexican government’s plans to create a new TV network to increase competition in the broadcasting industry, Azcárraga said in an opinion column published on the Wall Street Journal’s website.

Azcárraga’s company also is willing to offer concessions to the nation’s antitrust agency to win approval for its planned entry in the mobile-phone market, he said.
