By Kim Huggett
-- Ambassador Carlos Felix Corona, consul general of Mexico, will discuss his country’s new president, trade, education and immigration policy when he is hosted at a Hayward Chamber of Commerce luncheon on February 21, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. at the Golden Peacock Banquet Hall, 24989 Santa Clara Street, Hayward.
"Hayward has a historic connection with Mexico, with important cultural and economic ties as well as family connections that the ambassador appreciates and wants to address," said Kim Huggett, president and CEO of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce. "He recognizes Hayward's unique links to his country and is eager to speak in our community."
Ambassador Felix assumed his duties as dean of Mexico's San Francisco consular corps in October 2011. He was appointed consul general in 2007 by President Felipe Calderon and attained the rank of career ambassador in 2009. He will be accompanied to the Hayward event by staff including representatives of the ProMexico trade organization.
Members of the chamber's Latino Business Roundtable will act as greeters for this event. Reservations are $25 each and available online. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
