Mexican retail magnate urges open borders, business partnerships
“Mexicans and Americans are neighbors. That’s the way it is. Fate put us here. Instead of building fences we should be building bridges.”
That sums up the sentiments in an hourlong talk by Ricardo Salinas Pliego, Mexican businessmen and one of Forbes World’s Richest People who serves as president and CEO of Grupo Salinas.
The Mexican retail magnate challenged business editors and reporters at his Friday afternoon talk at SABEW to help challenge the U.S. audience to rethink the relationship between the two countries.
