Activity #2

The new Mayor of Mexico City has asked you to develop a strategy for CETRAM development over the next five years, building from the MCMA’s experience to date. Based on what criteria should the Mayor prioritize CETRAMs for re-development and why? Can public objectives and private sector objectives be reasonably reconciled in CETRAM Development and, if so, how? If the government is to continue to turn to the private sector for CETRAM development via PPPs, what should the public sector’s strategy look like in terms of structuring competition, awarding development rights, defining the PPP terms, providing subsidies, etc.? What else should the Mayor take into account when developing her strategy?
