The head of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP), Carlos Urzúa, reported on Saturday that Mexico and Japan led the debate against corruption during the meeting in Osaka of the Group of 20 (G-20), which integrates the largest economies in the world.
The official took stock of his participation in the G-20 work meeting, which was held for two days in the Japanese city of Osaka, and which he attended on behalf of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador together with Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard Casaubón.
Briefly, he indicated that he also participated in two sessions of presidents and prime ministers around which international trade is fluid, free and in principle has the least obstacles to growth.
In a joint press teleconference with the Foreign Secretary, Ebrard Casaubón, Urzúa explained that an issue related to the fight against corruption was addressed “and that comes as a ring to our finger.”
The head of the Federal Executive has insisted that corruption is the biggest problem we have to face if we want to be a more inclusive society, with economic growth and justice.
He mentioned that during the two days of the G20 meeting, he participated in a session on the global economy, emphasizing international trade situations, while a second was on the digital economy.
He also noted the importance of paying close attention to what is called the erosion of the tax base that is taking place in many countries.
