Felipe Calderón served a six-year term as president of Mexico, serving as the nation's second democratically elected president since the end of the Institutional Revolutionary Party's 70-year hold on power. He is credited with having boosted the nation's economic development as a pro-business, pro-free market leader and having made significant reforms to the country's environmental, immigration and health care policies. During his presidency, Mexico hosted the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP-16) global climate change talks in December 2010, and the G-20 meetings in July 2012, for which Calderón served as Chair. He spoke at HSPH as part of the Decision-making: Voices from the Field series September 16, 2013. Watch the entire series at http://hsph.me/voices.
