25/04/2019 - The latest OECD Economic Survey of Mexico, to be released on Thursday 2 May, analyses the factors underpinning the country’s moderate economic expansion, as well as the need for a renewed strategy to boost growth, reduce Mexico’s high poverty and inequalities, and improve well-being. The Survey discusses policies for raising productivity and other reforms that could simultaneously support growth and share its benefits more widely, to raise prosperity for all.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 17:00 CET (15:00 GMT) on Thursday 2 May for immediate release.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the Survey with Mexican Minister of Finance Carlos Urzúa during a press conference in Mexico City starting at 10:00 local time, at the Salón de Usos multiples, Palacio Nacional (Plaza de la Constitución S/N, Centro, Cuauhtémoc, 06066 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico, entrada por la calle de Moneda).
An Overview of the Economic Survey, with the main conclusions and policy recommendations, will be freely accessible on the OECD’s website at: http://www.oecd.org/economy/surveys/mexico-economic-snapshot/. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
