Economic delegation from Mexico holds discussion at WCGE

Leading representatives of the two largest industry associations, “Confederacion Patronal de la Republica de Mexico" (COPARMEX) and "Union Social de Empresarios de Mexiko" (USEM) were guests at the WCGE on May 30th.

They were accompanied by four young Mexican entrepeneurs who had been awarded the renowned “Lorenzo Servitje Prize” for sustainable entrepreneurship.

The delegation was led by José Lázaro Támez Guerra, the president of USEM and his predecessor, Luis de la Peña, and was informed about the Wittenberg Center’s approach to ethics and the activities conducted at the Center. The Code of Responsible Conduct for Business was a particular point of interest in the discussion. Following on, current challenges in business life in Mexico were discussed.

The visit to Wittenberg was part of a two week, German-Mexican leadership training program focusing on business ethics, innovation and sustainability. The German partners of the program were the Industrial Association of Baden-Württemberg (LVI), the Association of German Industrial Companies (BDI) and the Association of Catholic Corporations (BKU). As a result of the visit, potential avenues of future collaboration between the program and the WCGE will be pursued, both in terms of further management seminars and the possibility to establish a dialogue process on the topic of “Responsible Business”.
