President Enrique Peña Nieto said Thursday that his administration will hold a series of public forums for citizens participation in the 2013-18 National Development Plan.
“We will implement the public’s best initiatives,” the president said at the National Palace. “The forums are (designed), precisely, to express ideas, and we are ready and prepared to receive them.
“We will listen to the fundamental players and sectors of our society, to youth, to women, to indigenous peoples (and) to disabled persons.”
Beginning March 2, the government will hold five forums throughout the country. Each will be dedicated to creating a peaceful, prosperous and inclusive country that provides quality education for all Mexicans and acts with global responsibility, Peña Nieto said.
“I will run an open government that is close to the people. … A government that asks for opinions, listens to the public, and with that as a fundamental, makes the best decisions,” he said.
