More than 50 of Jalisco’s leading business leaders met with Mexican President Enrique Peñã Nieto during a visit to Guadalajara made prior to his state visit to the United Kingdom.
The meeting took place at Casa Jalisco, the official residence of Governor Aristoteles Sandoval. Police closed a four-block area around the property for the duration of the meeting, provoking considerable traffic chaos.
The need for greater investment in infrastructure to keep Jalisco competitive was the main issue the business leaders raised with the president. The petitions included the urgent need for a second runway at the Guadalajara International Airport, improvements to federal highways and more infrastructure to guarantee the state’s water supply.
