Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador held his third governmental report on Wednesday, in front of a crowd of supporters in Mexico City.
The president celebrated the event at the halfway point of his term in office. Regional bands also played on stage to commemorate the occasion.
“We are standing, we have resisted adversity and we continue to advance in the transformation of public life in Mexico,” said Lopez Obrador at the beginning of his speech.
The head of state also referred to the “pain” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and acknowledged the advances made thanks to the vaccination efforts.
In addition, the president expressed the need to support the Central American countries “to reduce the migratory phenomenon” and showed his support for President Biden’s initiative to regularise 11 million migrants in the United States.
SOT, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, President of Mexico (Spanish): “Today we celebrate three years of government, and we are standing, despite the pandemic that has caused us so much pain, despite the economic crisis caused by neoliberalism, we are on our feet, we have resisted adversity and we continue to advance in the transformation of public life in Mexico.”
SOT, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, President of Mexico (Spanish): “In my recent trip to Washington, I proposed three basic actions. First, an investment plan in North America and throughout the continent for imports, to offer support for Central American countries to reduce the migration phenomenon, and to offer support for President Biden’s initiative to regularise 11 million undocumented migrants, mostly our countrymen who live and work in that country.”
SOT, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, President of Mexico (Spanish): “I told President Biden with all frankness that we were going to be watching the behaviour of the legislators, both from the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, and that with all respect and frankness we were going to pronounce ourselves at the time, to point out what solidarity means, and to acknowledge the gratitude of those who vote for this initiative.”
SOT, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, President of Mexico (Spanish): “It also helped us a lot to have the vaccine on time. Today 86 percent of Mexicans over 18-years-old are protected, almost all, with two doses. We have already started vaccinating young people between the ages of 15 and 18, and we are going to apply booster doses, starting with older adults.”
