Economic Survey of Mexico 2013
The new government has set an ambitious course of economic and social reforms (a key element of which is its recent Pacto por México), for which it has obtained broad political support. The policies of the past several years have positioned the country well in terms of macroeconomic and financial performance, but economic growth remains insufficient and more needs to be done to improve well-being. This Economic Survey puts forward reforms aimed to achieve higher income levels and better social conditions in Mexico. "This is an exciting time to discuss Mexico’s reforms. Reforms are happening nearly every week – the pace of reform is breathtaking, more-so than in any other OECD country. And these reforms are not just incremental reforms: even “painful” and substantial constitutional reforms are being passed, such as the telecommunications reform that was just approved by state legislatures yesterday." see full text of Speech by Deputy Secretary-General and Chief Economist, Pier Carlo Padoan.
