Calderón declares crisis over

Speaking at a tourism promotion event, President Calderón declared that the crisis in Mexico was at an end. Specifically referring to those who argued that Mexico was a failed state, the President said: “Nothing is falser than this. We not only confronted criminality with determination and energy.  We also faced the worst economic crisis that we’ve seen in generations, the second worse drought in 68 years, and the most drastic decline in oil production in the history of Mexico. … Despite all this, I can say to you today that adversity has not defeated us, and Mexico is overcoming its problems and moving forward.” The President also predicted that economic growth would be at least 4% in 2010, and could reach 5%.
