"Our public-private partnership with the city of Monterrey and the government of Nuevo Leon, Mexico demonstrates that such unions create opportunities for the city's very talented new graduates from local universities. And it clearly creates tremendous value for clients around the world who increasingly look to our centers in Latin America for the solutions they need."
