Unlocking Mexico's Economic Potential: A New Vision for Investment and Economic Development

Follow the discussion on Twitter: #mxASCOA | @ASCOA

Following Mexico's 2018 presidential election, the new administration is undertaking an ambitious social agenda and economic policies as part of its transformative plans. Mexico’s government maintains a focus on inclusive economic development, innovation, and diversification to drive economic growth. And with high approval levels, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has a strong mandate to accomplish his government’s goals. 

Moreover, Mexico remains one of the most attractive foreign investment destinations, given its extensive network of free-trade partners, and ranks at the top of Latin America and the Caribbean in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index.

AS/COA, in partnership with the Ministry of Finance (SHCP), will host its eleventh Latin American Cities Conference in Mexico City to discuss the new government’s economic priorities. Leaders from both the private and public sectors will address the opportunities arising from Mexico’s economic outlook, the potential for foreign investment, and efforts to fulfill the president's agenda.
