That afternoon, President Fox addressed a distinguished group of executive IT professionals, as well as members of the local and foreign media.

"UST Global is partnering with Centro Fox in order to help accomplish nothing less than the transformation of my country into a world-class technology economy," said Fox. "Together we will establish Mexico at the forefront of the information technology revolution in the region.

"We chose UST Global as our sole partner for the all-important work of transforming IT in Mexico for three reasons," he continued. "First, at UST Global quality means getting things right the first time, in a cost-effective way. Second, UST Global considers itself a strategic partner and thinks ahead for ways to either make money or save money for clients, and third, UST Global is willing to share the risks and take ownership of outcomes in order to ensure their clients' success."

The combined presence of UST Global and Centro Fox will offer reduced operational costs to clients through information technology services and solutions. These services and solutions will also add value through innovation, with a particular focus on the retail, banking, telecommunications, oil and gas sectors.
