About President Felipe Calderón:
Felipe Calderón took office as President of Mexico on December 1, 2006. With long-term vision and statesmanship, President Calderón has led a government driven by the objective to transform Mexico into a safer, more prosperous and just nation. He has confronted head-on numerous and deep-seeded challenges. He has not only valiantly pursued a major campaign to strengthen human security and the rule of law, but his Administration has also achieved major accomplishments in several other fronts. During his tenure, Mexico has reached the goal of providing universal access to healthcare services, and has dramatically expanded education at all levels: millions of students have benefited from scholarships to continue with their studies, opening the door for a better future. The Calderón Government's sound economic management has been critical to steer Mexico through an adverse global economic environment and to enable continued economic growth and the largest investment in public infrastructure in recent history, while fueling one of the most important yet silent transformations occurring in Mexico: the rise of the middle class. Moreover, throughout his Administration, Mexico and the United States have reached unprecedented levels of cooperation under the premise of shared responsibility, and Mexico has also become a world leader in promoting a green agenda and sustainable development. President Calderón's vision and policy agenda is setting the basis for long-term, sustainable economic growth, strong rule of law, and prosperity in Mexico.
