Former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox and his wife Marta Sahagún de Fox visited the IfM and researchers of the Alliance. They were interested in the research done in the area of manufacturing and services to understand the future trends in the area to further Mexico’s economy. They have multiple charities including the Centro Fox, which is the first presidential library created by a Mexican president. The aims include the disadvantaged and poor, but as well serve Mexico as a think tank. Their feedback was very complementary towards the Alliance's research.
