GMO Corn Panel Will Be Complicated by the Electoral Agenda
International Trade attorney Turenna Ramírez Ortiz was interviewed by El Financiero about the dispute resolution panel regarding Mexico's decree on genetically modified corn. The proximity of the publication of the panel's determinations to elections in the U.S. and Mexico has generated questions about possible political influence on the process. Ms. Ramírez Ortiz emphasized the importance of separating the political agenda from the fundamental principles of respect for the law and judicial security, as well as investment protection.
"From my perspective, the political agenda and the electoral changes that can affect Mexico as much as the United States, like the case, for example, of migration, is a topic totally and absolutely different that has nothing to do with respect for and compliance with international principles," she said.
