The EPP Group Presidency will be received by HE Enrique Peña Nieto, President of Mexico. They will meet with the Presidency of the Mexican Senate, with Foreign Affairs Minister Luis Videgaray Caso, Finance Minister José Antonio Meade Kuribreña, and with the EPP sister party President Ricardo Anaya Cortés, President of the National Action Party (PAN).
