The Presidency reports that as part of the dialogue on security organized by President Felipe Calderón, the President met with members of the Business Coordinating Council, led by its president, Mario Sánchez Ruiz and members of the business sectors comprising this organization, at the official Los Pinos residence.
During the meeting, the businessmen expressed their determination to participate actively in this dialogue and repeated the importance of ensuring that society and government advance towards strengthening security policies and actions. They also stressed the importance of having the three orders of government assume their respective tasks within a framework of joint responsibility.
For his part, President Calderón invited them to submit proposals in this respect, since his government is willing to evaluate them in order to boost the security strategy for dealing with the common enemy.
He agreed that in the fight against the lack of safety must not only be waged by Federal Government but must obviously be complemented and linked to the action of the country's states and municipalities as well as the participation of society.
He said that one of the main priorities is to advance towards social and preventive aspects to keep criminals away from social groups at risk, by creating greater opportunities in the educational and labor fields on the basis of the collaboration of the public and private sectors.
The Mexican President was accompanied by Economy Secretary Gerardo Ruiz Mateos and Private Secretary of the President, Luis Felipe Bravo Mena.
