Walmart de México y Centroamérica establishes process to facilitate requests from authorities
Mexico City, April 26 2012.- As part of its ongoing commitment to transparency, Walmart de México y Centroamérica has set up a process to guarantee that all requests from relevant Mexican authorities that wish to review the permits and licenses issued to the company for the operation of its stores in Mexico are properly satisfied.
This process is part of a wider program to strengthen the confidence of Mexico´s society at large about the nature and scope of its operations.
Walmart de México y Centroamérica will unequivocally cooperate with the Mexican authorities and make all these records available in compliance with Mexican laws.
This process is coordinated by our Ethics, Compliance and Corporate Quality Department.
Although the recently raised allegations are just that, allegations, we take them very seriously and will investigate them thoroughly. Though we wish that we could say more, we cannot do so in order to maintain the integrity of the investigation.
We are the first and most interested party to get to the bottom of this matter, and thus we reassure our commitment to cooperate in the ongoing investigation.
We reiterate our respect with the laws and regulations of Mexico and the Mexican authorities that enforce them.
Walmart de Mexico and Centroámerica will continue to fulfill its mission to contribute to improve the quality of life of the Mexican families.
