Business Barometer 21
The 1Q12 Business Barometer indicates the Mexican economy continues its upbeat trend. The business environment and outlook coupled with controlled inflation and the analysis of the government’s performance have brought home results that are better than numbers reported at year-end 2011. Even though some figures stand below 1Q11 levels, our survey of CEOs and businessmen reveals their upbeat outlook for the Mexican economy and point to the consolidation of a favorable climate for business development.
In the area of employment we discern an important shift. The positive movement in employment perspectives is driving upbeat expectations for the country’s social and economic stability. Stable demand and exchange rates, in conjunction with improving perceptions regarding security are also driving upbeat expectations for the performance of the Mexican economy.
