OECD Economic Survey of Mexico launches Thursday 16 May 2013


15/05/2013 - The OECD’s latest Economic Survey of Mexico, to be published on Thursday 16 May 2013, looks at how structural reforms carried out over the past few years have improved the country’s economic performance and increased its resilience in the face of external shocks.


The Survey assesses the new government’s ambitious economic and social agenda and outlines potential reforms to boost economic growth and improve well-being, notably by strengthening legal institutions. A special chapter in the report underlines the need to improve fiscal federal relations, while another analyses the connected challenges of bringing about greener growth and reforming the energy sector.


The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 5:00 p.m. Paris time for immediate release.

An Overview with the main conclusions will be freely accessible in pdf format on the OECD’s web site at You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
