June 30, 2011 § Leave a comment
Vicente Fox met informally with Freedom Center executives after a luncheon and tour of the museum’s permanent exhibit, “Invisible: Slavery Today,” where Fox proposed creation of a wall or room in his presidential library, the Vicente Fox Center of Studies, Library and Museum – known as Centro Fox, near his ranch in Guanajuato, Mexico – that would lead to cultural and student exchange.
Fox’s grandfather, Joseph Louis Fuchs, was born, educated and worked in Cincinnati before moving to Mexico.
At the meeting on Thursday, Vicente Fox called for the United States, Mexico and Canada to ‘better harness their collective economic might to ward off the challenge of growing economies in China and throughout Asia’.
