The North American Free Trade Agreement has made Mexico an attractive market for U.S. firms, particularly in the environmental field. At the same time, privatization (as with toll roads and power projects) in Mexico is on the upswing and offers opportunities of its own. Executives involved in Mexico describe their experiences: Jorge Borja, director general of ICA Fluor Daniel, a company set up by Fluor Daniel Inc. and ICA of Mexico City; Austin Hurley of Lockwood Greene of South Carolina, which, together with Mexico's Grupo Gusta, owns GLG Ingenieria Internacional; Jean Yves Perez, chairman and CEO of WWC de Mexico, part of Denver-based Woodward Clyde; Edwin Berk, senior Vice-president of ICF Kaiser, based in Virginia, which has a 10-employee office in Mexico City; Constantin Shkurovich of ICJC de Mexico, which has a strategic marketing alliance with Roy F. Weston of Pennsylvania; and Michael Schneider, senior vice-president.
