State of Yucatan, 17 February 2020
On 17 February, the OECD Regulatory Policy Division reported to Governor Mauricio Vila Dorsal a 27% progress increase in Yucatan’s implementation of recommendations to improve state formalities with high impacts on citizens and the business sector.
The recommendations to improve high-impact formalities, which include improvements to business opening formalities, construction permits, property registration, driver's licences and vehicle re-registration, as well as measures to improve regulatory transparency and enhance the state’s capacity in managing formalities, cover 361 actions that the OECD delivered to the State of Yucatan on 5 September 2019. The recommendations are based on good national and international practices in simplifying formalities contained in the Guide to Improve the Regulatory Quality of State and Municipal Formalities and Strengthen Mexico's Competitiveness.
This effort comes from the co-operation agreement between the OECD and the State of Yucatan, and aims to enhance the business environment.
Some of the main achievements include:
The next progress assessment will take place in May 2020.
