President Fox

OECD Observer

We hope we can move ahead collectively to improve the situations of those nations that urgently need development”, said president of Mexico, Mr Vincente Fox, on visit to the OECD of 15 November 2002.

“We need things to improve, because where there is no growth, there are no jobs. And where there are no jobs, there is more poverty, violence, crime and political instability. The more fragile countries are already paying a heavy price for this 18-month recession.”
