A joint event with Grupo Atalaya

In just three months of Andrés Manuel López Obrador´s presidency, Mexico´s political landscape has shifted considerably. The country´s 120 million inhabitants makes it an indispensable economy for British companies and investors – which is why Canning House believes it is timely to develop a granular understanding of the opportunities and risks AMLO’s presidency holds.

We are joined for this webinar by Gustavo Mohar, Founder and Director General of Grupo Atalya, a private consultancy based in Mexico City specialising in nontechnical risk and strategic intelligence, and an Associate Member of Canning House.
