Four years after Mexico overhauled its telecommunication and broadcasting sectors with a major legal and regulatory reform, a new OECD Review assesses the impact on communication markets, businesses and households. It recommends further measures for the telecommunication and broadcasting sectors 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, presented the OECD Telecommunication and Broadcasting Review of México 2017 along with Andrew Wyckoff, Director of Science, Technology and Innovation, OECD, Communications and Transport Minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza and Federal Telecommunications Institute President Commissioner Gabriel Oswaldo Contreras Saldívar on 31 August 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Mexico City.
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.

OECD GOING DIGITAL
The OECD's Going Digital project is a multidisciplinary, cross-cutting initiative that aims to help policymakers in all relevant policy areas better understand the digital transformation that is taking place across different sectors of the economy and society as a whole. It will articulate recommendations for pro-active – rather than reactive – policies that will help to drive greater growth and societal well-being and help address the challenges of slow productivity growth, high unemployment and growing inequality in many countries.
