Business Barometer Survey 19
The nineteenth edition of the Deloitte's Business Barometer Survey goes deep into the negative perception among Mexican executives in regards the future of economics, which had been envisioned with the results from the previous quarter. Insecurity has been displaced by the US economic slowdown now as the main threat perceived by executives in the Mexico's business environment.
This edition shows a significant impairment, compared to the same period in 2010, of all variables under which the business environment is assessed. The business expectations gathered through this Barometer show a relevant setback, since they are similar to those achieved in the first quarter of 2008, before the last recession in the country. Thus, the perspectives in regard the economic situation in general, the investment environment, and the credit availability show a pronounced weakening compared to previous quarters. The executives' opinion states that such prospective overview will continue for next year, except in regard to inflation, which registers a slight improvement.
A positive aspect to be highlighted is the favorable assessment of the Federal Government's performance, which showed a slight upturn in this last quarter, keeping in very high levels the particular perception of inflation control.
