On 22 March 2018, the OECD released its third and final evaluation of Merida’s implementation of the recommendations to improve municipal formalities WITH high-impact on the business sector. Merida reached a score of 100%. It is the first time that a municipality complies with all the recommendations of the OECD on regulatory policy, under objective and verifiable criteria.
In June 2017, the OECD presented to the City of Merida 235 recommendations to improve formalities of high-impact on business activity, which included the procedures for starting a company, obtaining building permits, as well as measures to improve regulatory transparency and efficiency in the management of formalities. The recommendations are based on good national and international practices in terms of simplifying municipal procedures contained in the Guide to Improve the Regulatory Quality of State and Municipal Formalities and Strengthen Mexico's Competitiveness.
The co-operation agreement between the OECD and the municipality of Merida aimed at enhancing the business environment.
