Mexican legislators, 24 September

In a visit organized with the help of Mexican Senator Javier Castelo Parada, CIMMYT received a delegation comprising Senator Castelo, Deputy Sergio Sandoval Paredes, and staff in representation of several other federal legislators on 24 September 2008. As one result, Javier Peña, Kevin Pixley, and Bram Govaerts were invited to describe CIMMYT’s work to nine deputies, two senators, eight persons representing deputies, and another eight persons (27 in all) in a special, three-hour working session at the Mexican Chamber of Deputies on 01 October. Among other things, this may result in a return visit to CIMMYT by a larger group of legislators in the near future and stronger support from Mexico for the center’s work.
