Mexico has acquired unique experience during its integration into global value chains, especially in the automotive industry.

I hope for my children, and for all Mexicans, that they can be proud to be Mexican, proud of their heritage, and proud that they have a peaceful, inclusive, vibrant country that is playing a role in the world.

I'm not going to work so that Pena Nieto is the best known or most recognized in the world. I'm going to work so that Mexico has results.

Important reserves of natural resources, like petroleum and precious metals, are the bulwarks for laying the foundations for the future.

I think money laundering is giving oxygen to organized crime.

Mexico is the second most important destination of U.S. exports. What does this mean? The U.S. sells to our country almost the same as it sells to all the European Union, five times what it sells Brazil. More than what it sells together to Brazil, Russia, China, and India.

I believe immigration reform is a commitment of President Obama's government, especially since it gives him a chance to respond to the great demand expressed by U.S. Hispanic voters.

Each dollar Mexico exports to the U.S. has a content of American production of 40¢.

Mexico cannot put up with this scenario of death and kidnapping.

There are many commitments I have made for reducing poverty. One is to reform social security. Social security reaches only 44 percent of Mexicans. One of my goals is to give social security to all the people.

Every time you go for more competition, some people don't like it, but that's the way it is.

I may not remember the name of a book's author, but let it be clear, what I will not forget is the violence, the poverty and the desperation that Mexico is living through.

If we don't make sure that Mexico can offer potential investors more input, they'll stop coming to Mexico. They'll go to the United States or other places where it is more economically viable to carry out their projects.

To get elected in Mexico today, you have to compete like any democracy, and you don't do that by being manipulated.

In the Mexico we want, there is no room for corruption, for cover-ups, and least of all for impunity.

My only definition is that I am a pragmatist.

I think it is fundamental to understand that the ethics of politics indicate that you should concentrate your efforts on those marginalized people who live in poverty with few opportunities to develop individually.

One of the big goals of my administration will be to reposition Mexico again as an emerging power.

The level of credit in Mexico has shown to be low. And where credit concentrates the most favors large corporations and not companies.

My government's first aim will be to bring peace to Mexico.

We should reconsider greater integration of North America to achieve a region that is more competitive and capable of creating more jobs.

There is no doubt a president has to govern for everyone.

It's obvious that Pemex doesn't have the financial capacity to be in every single front of energy generation.

Mexico has perhaps, in some ways, a good practice, in which it has officials devoted precisely to hold those children, to retain those children that are crossing through our territory, who are coming from Central America.

Do you agree that when there's tension and an obsession to want to hit the ball is when you hit it worst? You have to be loose.

Politics and more politics - that's how you work towards the building of agreements.

I have read a number of books, starting with novels, that I particularly liked.

U.S. politicians are increasingly recognizing the relevance of the Hispanic vote in U.S. politics.

My interest is to establish an agenda of engagement with Mexicans that will respond to Mexicans' most urgent needs.

Mexico has not achieved the advances that the population demands or deserves.

There is an opportunity to consolidate the North American region as a more competitive region, a more productive region that will be more competitive than other blocs that have integrated in the rest of the world.

The United States is already Mexico's largest trading partner.

In a democratic society, we politicians have to accept criticism, especially when it is founded.

I will run an open government that speaks with honesty, seeks opinion, listens to its citizens.

Without better economic opportunity, you can't have better public security and vice versa.

Whenever there are some who have more opportunities than others, this feeds corruption.

Free trade, far from protectionism, is the path that we should take to make Latin America a thriving actor in the global economy.

You can't consider a president weak because he will have a Congress that Mexican voters have wanted to be co-responsible in the decisions to be taken... It will be through the leadership that I will exercise that we will be able to build the agreements in Congress.

The coalition is a model that has no place in a presidential regime such as in Mexico. It fits in parliamentary models, but Mexico has a presidential regime.

I have publicly talked about Mexico's need to open ourselves up to the participation of the private sector in the energy sector, however this doesn't mean privatizing state-run companies.

Acting aggressively will allow our youth to aspire for better-paid jobs and find alternatives to criminality.

I think a good relationship that Mexico could maintain with the United States and vice versa should be based on trust, on opening - openness and constant dialogue that would allow us essentially to define, share objectives and to work towards those so as to avoid activities which are not known to the other government.

I see myself as a family man.

I plan to open Mexico's energy sector to national and foreign private investment.

Mexico has shelters, which care for children trying to cross the border, who have no company with them.

There is no evidence that terrorists use Mexico to cross into the United States. There have been comments to that regard, but not one of those statements has contained hard evidence.

The route of expropriation, and especially in energy matters, is not what most promotes investment or generates greater confidence.

Politics is an instrument that can transform society.

I will be the government of increasing economic growth and creating jobs. Take it from me that that's the main issue.
