Tuesday 05 December 2017 -
18:30 to 22:00

The BBC World Service Radio programme World Questions comes to Mexico on December 5th to discuss the country’s political future. BBC presenter Jonathan Dimbleby, a panel of leading politicians and analysts and a lively audience will be in Mexico City to discuss the major issues facing the country.

With a general election looming, Mexicans will decide who will become their new President – and which direction the country should now take. How should Mexico engage with the USA and President Trump? What will happen to the NAFTA trade agreement? And what will Mexico do about its challenges of inequality, corruption and violence?

The programme will be recorded in English at the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia (Museum of Memory and Tolerance) on Tuesday December 5th, 2017.

The panellists are: 

  •  Denise Dresser, writer and academic
  •  Valeria Moy, economist
  • Senator Armando Rios Piter, Independent Presidential candidate
  •  Andres Rozental, former Mexican ambassador and former Deputy Minister of Foreign Relations 

The event starts at 18.30 and will consist of a drinks reception, an artistic performance and the debate. Guests who previously registered are kindly requested to arrive on time. For organisational reasons, we cannot guarantee entry after 19:15 hours.
