MEXICO CITY, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Mexico Secretary of Tourism Gloria
Guevara Manzo yesterday presented the country's successful tourism model to an
audience of faculty and students of the Fuqua School of Business at Duke
University in North Carolina.

During the Latin American Business Symposium 2012, hosted by the Latin
American Student Association, Secretary Guevara outlined the global challenges
facing the tourism industry in 2009, such as the H1N1 influenza and the
economic and financial crisis.

Despite these challenges, the work of Mexico's federal government led to
record-breaking achievements in the tourism industry. For example, last year
more than 191 million domestic and foreign visitors traveled in Mexico, a
historic figure, and this year the number is expected to exceed 200 million.

Speakers at the event included Russ Morgan, Dean of the Business School; James
Hogan, President of Medtronic Latin America; Timothy Marx, Principal of BCG
Mexico; Rodolfo Martinez, Vice President of Production, ESPN International,
ESPN Deportes; and Liliana Ayalde, Deputy Assistant Secretary for the United
States State Department with responsibility for the Offices of Caribbean
Affairs, Central American Affairs and Cuban Affairs.

Secretary Guevara met yesterday with Russ Morgan, Dean of the Fuqua School of
Business of Duke University.

Duke University, located in North Carolina, was founded in 1883 and is ranked
8th in the United States. The Fuqua School of Business has established itself
as one of the best in the United States despite being recently established;
the school has an enrollment of 13,000 students and a staff of world-renowned
professors.
