Spotlight on Reforms

Emerging markets have been rightly criticized for squandering favorable global conditions by not taking decisive steps to guarantee their long-term economic health. Mexico has been a gratifying exception to the rule.

This week my colleagues at White & Case released the report, “Spotlight on Reforms in Mexico,” noting that the country has recently risen to a prominent place on many investors’ radar screens. If its transformation is successful, Mexico might prove itself the best investment opportunity of the moment. You can click here for the full report.

I recently visited with Dr. Deborah L. Riner and directed five questions to her about Mexico’s economy. As you may know, Deborah holds a PhD of Economics from Princeton University and is the Chief Economist at the American Chamber of Commerce here in Mexico. You can follow her on twitter @Economexus and find the full interview here.

Lastly, if you haven’t already I hope you’ll stay in touch with me on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. And, if I can ever be of help from my office here at White & Case in Mexico City or through Vianovo Ventures, simply call.

I recently met with National Review’s Mario Loyola to discuss Mexico’s energy reform. Mr. Loyola is a former counselor for foreign and defense policy to the U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee and wrote what I think is a thoughtful and forward-looking piece.
