Statement of OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría on the earthquake in Mexico


20/09/2017 - “The thoughts of the entire OECD community are with the people of Mexico today. We are deeply saddened by the loss of life and hope that those still unaccounted for will be brought to safety.


“Exactly thirty-two years ago, Mexico endured a devastating earthquake that changed the capital, and its inhabitants, forever. From that tragedy, Mexico emerged more resilient and more prepared. Mexico can count on our full support to recover in this moment and in the days to come.


“My own heart is with Mexico as a member of the OECD and as my home.”
