Mexico, 10 January 2012
During the last three years, Mexico has enhanced its business environment, which has been reflected in the improvement of its international competitiveness indices. Several initiatives on regulatory reform and competitiveness launched by the Federal Government of Mexico, with the support of the OECD, have been crucial to reach these achievements. They include, the web portal tuempresa.gob.mx, the regulatory reform initiative Base Cero, the upgrade of the Regulatory Impact Assessment, the Strategy to lift Productivity and Accelerate Growth, the OECD Guide to Improve the Regulatory Quality of formalities at State and Municipal level in Mexico, among others.
The 3rd Annual OECD-Mexican Ministry of Economy Conference in “Regulatory Improvement and Competition as foundations for Competitiveness” allowed to reflect on the results achieved in the improvement of competitiveness, and to identify the challenges for Mexico for the immediate future. The conference offered the opportunity for the OECD Secretary-General to present the 2012 edition of the Guide to Improve the Regulatory Quality of State and Municipal Formalities and to launch the 2012 OECD Review of Regulatory Reform in Mexico.
