dc.description.abstractMexico still suffers from many internal problems that impede its international development. The fight for independence remains, and internal economic and political considerations are still very significant. But Mexico has been making some very important steps toward independence, and perhaps the first roughest ones are over. Its foreign policy has a long way to go until it is autonomous, from either the U.S.'s or any other country's control. Supported by its long held traditional policies, its nationalism, and by the power of oil, Mexico is well on its way to forging an independent foreign policy. The opportunities to help it do this look like they are going to stay around for awhile, and if its current cautious economic and political policies are maintained in the forthcoming administration, I believe that the cement around Mexico's increased position in the international arena will have a chance to solidify.
