"As Businessmen, It's Up To Us To Move Mexico": Carlos Hank Gonzalez

MEXICO CITY, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Commenting on Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's second state of the nation speech, Carlos Hank Gonzalez, CEO of Grupo Financiero Interacciones and Grupo Hermes, called on the business community to be part of the "new Mexico" already laid out by the federal government, and for every businessman and woman to do their part to make this a reality.

"With the structural reforms approved, the federal government has laid the groundwork for a profound transformation of our economy, and indirectly, of the very social fabric of this country. This is an opportunity we mustn't waste to take a quantum leap and place ourselves at the forefront of emerging countries.  As businessmen, it's up to us to move Mexico as well," Mr. Hank asserted.

Grupo Hermes and Grupo Financiero Interacciones have developed a solid and recognized track record in building and financing infrastructure works.  Banco Interacciones is the largest specialized bank in Mexico and Grupo Hermes Infraestructura has participated in key public works like the Gran Museo del Mundo Maya and the Durango-Mazatlan highway.  Based on this experience, Carlos Hank Gonzalez remarked that the President's decision to build a new airport for Mexico City is consistent with the demands of our country: "This was a need identified decades ago, and I'm very glad the government can finally make this announcement.  A country that intends to play in the major leagues needs major-league infrastructure."

Carlos Hank Gonzalez sees the president's speech as "the kickoff signal for building another Mexico. But building it is everyone's responsibility, and as businessmen and women, we have to play our part by creating jobs and economic growth."
