Mexicos Leftist Presidential Front-runner Meets With Business Leaders


MEXICO CITY – Mexico’s leftist presidential front-runner met on Tuesday with leaders of the country’s biggest companies in a session the candidate described as cordial and productive, despite the anxiety his campaign has generated in the business community.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who has a double-digit lead in most opinion polls ahead of the July 1 vote, spoke in the capital with members of the Consejo Mexicano de Negocios, a trade group that represents the country’s biggest companies across a range of sectors.

The meeting touched on topics including the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States and Canada, corruption and job creation, Lopez Obrador said.
