MEXICO CITY — The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is hosting its World Questions series in Mexico City Tuesday Dec. 5, co-sponsoring an English-language debate on the country’s political and economic future.

Panelists are Denise Dresser, writer and academic; Valeria Moy Campos, economist; Senator Armando Ríos Piter, independent presidential candidate and Andrés Rozental Gutman, former diplomat and undersecretary of foreign affairs.
Mary Hockaday of BBC World Service English said it was “an exciting time to bring BBC World Questions to Mexico as the country starts gearing up for next year’s elections . . . this is a chance for the audience to put their questions to a panel of Mexican politicians, thinkers and opinion formers, and have their voices heard across the globe.”
Kevin Mackenzie of the British Council, which is co-sponsoring the event, described the debate as an opportunity to understand and discuss the current issues the country faces ahead of interesting challenges.
The World Questions: Mexico City episode will be held tomorrow at the Museum of Memory and Tolerance, beginning at 6:30pm.
The debate will air on the BBC World Service on Saturday at 1:06pm GMT. It will also be available for on-demand listening through the BBC’s World Service Radio website.
