25/08/2017 - Four years after Mexico overhauled its telecommunications sector with a major legal and regulatory reform, a new OECD Review assesses the impact on the market, businesses and households. It recommends further measures for the telecoms and broadcast sector to build on this progress and ensure Mexico reaps maximum benefits from the digital transformation.
Gabriela Ramos, the OECD Chief of Staff, G20 Sherpa and Special Advisor to the Secretary-General, will present the Telecommunication and Broadcasting Review along with Communications and Transport Minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza and Federal Telecommunications Institute President Commissioner Gabriel Oswaldo Contreras Saldívar at 09:30 on 31 August at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Mexico City. The presentation is open to the media and will be followed by a brief press conference from around 10:30.
Journalists wishing to attend the launch should register using this link.

Journalists outside Mexico interested in the Review can contact Catherine Bremer in the OECD Media Office (email@example.com, +33 1 45 24 97 00).
The Review will be available to all journalists registered on the OECD's password-protected website from the release time of 10:00 Mexico City time (15:00 GMT) on 31 August. Advance copies in Spanish or English under embargo are available to journalists on request.
The 2017 Review follows the OECD’s 2012 Review of Telecommunication Policy and Regulation in Mexico, whose recommendations contributed to the country’s 2013 reform.
