Business Barometer Survey 18
We introduce the eighteenth edition of the Business Barometer Survey amid a context of mixed realities for the Mexican economy. On the downside, moderation in national economic activity, recently announced by the Bank of Mexico, and productivity slowdown in the United States have led to a downward revision of growth expectations. On the positive side, we have inflation control, exchange rate stability and a credit market in full expansion.
Overall, survey results are positive: Companies remain solid, reflecting the recovery of Mexican economy and keeping the upturn started two years ago. We will have to wait until next quarter to see whether expectations about the economic future keep their downward trend or we are just in the presence of a cyclical decline.
