After congratulating Congress on passing secondary telecommunications legislations, President Enrique Peña Nieto assured that the reform will enhance the quality of life of Mexicans and make Mexico a more competitive country during a trip to Durango on July 10th, 2014.

The President praises the Telecommunications Reform and assures that changes will enhance life quality for all Mexicans.

During the inauguration of new infrastructure in the capital city of Victoria de Durango, Peña Nieto said that promoting the reform does not apply only to the government, even though it shares the majority of the responsibility.

Working together as a team is when we can really see our goals for a better Mexico to come alive, creating a brighter future for the generations to come,” he said.

He explained that the passing of the reforms in telecommunications starts with the commitment to make Mexico a more competitive country and creating incentives for Mexicans to be more productive such as raising salaries, investing more in the work place, improving working conditions and generating new jobs.

This reform will eliminate long distance calling fees, increase competition in the television, telephone, and internet industries, and increase the quality of services while maintaining affordable prices,” Peña Nieto said.

He assured that the benefits of the new reform will have a positive economic outcome for Mexicans, a constant goal of the president’s administration and of the structural reforms undertaken in recent months.

As an example, he referred to the reform in taxation, which although may not be very popular among some sectors, has allowed the government to put aside sufficient resources to advance the National Infrastructure Plan, which will allocate 7.7 trillion pesos ($587 billion USD) for the public sector in the coming years. Funds will be geared towards improving social issues.
