Since President Felipe Calderon took office in December 2006, Mexico has embarked upon the implementation of a culture of law and security that has triggered a war with organized crime.

More > has dramatically increased trade and investment flows with the rest of the world, including regions such as Latin America, with which it historically has had very little interaction.
