LESSONS FROM MEXICAN ECONOMIC REFORMS.

John Kehoe, from the Australian Financial Review, published today an op-ed on the economic reforms undertaken by Mexican President Peña Nieto.  Kehoe highlights the political agreement reached among the three major parties (PRI, PAN, PRD) that have enable the current administration to pass the much needed reforms (previous post). Despite outstanding challenges to overcome, such as violence and corruption, Mexico earned ‘A’ grade sovereign rate from Moody’s credit rating agency as a result of such reforms.

 

Kehoe further notes Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey comments, on Mexico’s efforts to undertake domestic reforms to cope with global volatility. Last weekend in Sydney, G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors committed to promote a resilient financial system and to foster a conducive investment environment. The author concludes that Mexico, along with other developing countries, is in a much better position to fulfill the G20 commitments.
