Mexico ready for investment, president tells London

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (R) leaves 10 Downing Street after meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron (not pictured) in central London on March 4, 2015Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto told British investors in London on Wednesday that his country was open for business, as he seeks to boost confidence abroad amid concerns over violence and corruption. “Mexico is a good country to invest in,” the president told the London audience, noting the reforms he had brought in since coming to power in 2012. The president’s visit to Britain is part of a push to burnish his image internationally as he struggles with falling approval ratings and relentless drug violence at home. The disappearance and alleged murder of 43 college students by a police-backed gang galvanised protests in Mexico, and on Tuesday Mexicans demonstrated in London calling on Britain to address the “human rights crisis”.
