27 of August of 2013
OECD and the Municipality of Hermosillo launched a programme to implement the OECD Guide to improve formalities at state and municipal level in Mexico. Hermosillo becomes the second municipality in Mexico in engaging in this programme with the OECD. The OECD will identify the necessary regulatory improvement actions to implement the 26 recommendations of the Guide, and will follow up on their implementation.
At the meeting it was emphasised that the OECD is interested in helping create “champions” on regulatory improvement policies, which could represent sources of inspiration to other municipalities to engage in reform. One of the main elements to apply successful regulatory policies is political commitment of the highest level.
The OECD will provide capacity building workshops, and will review the processes of starting up a business, construction permits, registering property, registering as a government supplier, as well as the regulatory transparency and the efficiency on the management of formalities in the Municipality of Hermosillo.
