His numerous civic activities include: Member of the Board of the World Economic Forum, Mexican Council for Foreign Trade (Chairman at its creation), Consultant to the President of Mexico, and President of Bilateral Committee Mexico-France.

    He has been recognized internationally for his involvement in the with alliances between countries with such honors as the Legion of Honor from France, Orden Nacional de Cruzeiro do Sul from Brazil, Order Antonio Jose Irisari from Guatemala, Serviciul Credincios from Romania.
