Mexico and its incredible potential is my biggest struggle and passion today. I see this country as the umbilical cord of the world, a symbol of paradox and tremendous beauty. Mexico is so incredibly biodiverse and rich in natural resources, history and culture and is moving towards its place as a global leader. The family values prevalent in Mexico and the ingenuity and entrepreneurial zest of its people are its greatest resources.
